Sly Stallone Charged With Importing Steroids Into Australia
Well, it looks like Rocky’s a Roid-Popper. Sylvester Stallone tried to bring 48 vials of human growth hormone (hGH) into Australia, and was caught during a random search upon his arrival at the airport, a Sydney court has been told.
The 60-year-old actor did not appear in the Downing Centre Local Court today where charges against him for importing a banned substance were briefly mentioned.
The Australian Customs Service has charged Stallone with one count of importing a prohibited import. Stallone was detained at Sydney Airport on February 16 after prohibited substances were allegedly found in his luggage.
The maximum fine for the offence is $110,000, but the maximum financial penalty a local court can impose is $22,000.
Stallone was in Sydney last month for the premiere of his new film Rocky Balboa, he left three days later.
