Sylvester Stallone Busted For Steroids

Will Rocky be stripped of his many titles?

Sylvester Stallone was officially charged with importing performance and image enhancing drugs in a Sydney, Australia courtroom, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

According to Australian authorities, the 60-year-old action star, who did not appear in court, was caught at Sydney Airport with several vials of a steroid known as hGH (human growth hormone), during a random baggage check.

Customs officials claim they found a total of 48 vials of the steroids after they raided Stallone's Sydney hotel room, limo and private jet.

Maybe Stallone started the felching rumor about his former acting rival, Richard Gere, to distract the media from his own steroid use. Something to think about.

Stallone will be required to enter a plea on April 24. If found guilty, he faces a fine of up to $22,000. That's less than Britney Spears drops per month to her rehab clinic of choice.

According to a popular steroids website, "Body builders may illicitly self-administer hGH to improve size and strength, usually by subcutaneous injection into the lower abdomen." HGH has also "become a popular but expensive medication prescribed in anti-aging therapies."

It's only a matter of time before Pete Doherty discovers this stuff!

Stallone was visiting Australia in February to promote his latest film, Rocky Balboa. Who knew he would go down under drug suspicion.

Reps for Stallone had no comment. No word on whether the home of Stallone look-alike Brandon Davis has been raided as part of the steroid probe.
