AS TATTLE RAN to press last night, TMZ.com and the Sydney Morning Herald reported that Sylvester Stallone (aka Rocky) had been charged in a Sydney courtroom with illegally importing steroids.According to Aussie authorities, Stallone, who did not appear in court, was caught at Sydney Airport on a promotional tour for “Rocky Balboa” last month, with several vials of human growth hormone.
When customs officials raided Stallone’s hotel room, the number of HGH vials reached 48.
Stallone, 60, will enter a plea in Sydney on April 24. If found guilty, he’s not going to jail, but he could be forced to pay a fine of up to $22,000.
According to steroid.com, HGH is “a popular but expensive medication prescribed in anti-aging therapies.”
