Man accused of giving son 14 steroids to motivate him


hosted.ap.org

GILBERTVILLE, Iowa (AP) -- A man has been arrested for giving his teenage son steroids to motivate him about sports. The man was charged with distributing a controlled substance to a minor.

Authorities said the investigation began after the man's 14-year-old son assaulted his mother at her Gilbertville home on Nov. 19. Officers who responded to the home found a syringe and 105 pills in the boy's bedroom.

Court records show that boy told investigators his father gave him the pills during an earlier weekend visitation. The records also show that the father admitted to giving his son the needle and the pills.

A test at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation showed the pills were an anabolic steroid.

There are not a lot of studies on the use of steroids or other dangerous performance-enhancing drugs. The parents are mostly to blame

Recently, a news paper in Texas conducted an investigation into the use of steroids by high-school athletes were it was learned that not only did the coaches know of the use by their athletes, but the parents as well looked the other way, They want there kids to excel in sports at all costs

Just reading your thread title mate - it kind of reads the man was accused of giving his son 14 steroids. But upon reading the article, he gave his son hundereds of doses of steroids - and even admitted it, not just being accused right?

The whole thing is pretty crazy - the kid is way too young to be on steroids.

Accused (as in innocent until proven guilty in a court of law) and it should read with a comma after 14. Sort of like Man accused of giving son 14, steroids to motivate him for sports. Not really that important accept it can be confusing grammar wise. You just have to be able to get the basic meaning of what is going on to understand the title better.
His son was 14 and he is accused of giving them to him (even though he admitted to it) because he has yet to be found guilty.


As for the topic this is crazy. It makes you wonder what type of relationship he actually had with his father to begin with. Not that any sport is so important to use steroids over but school sports and steroids is really a joke. Talk about pushing kids too far.
