Sylvester Stallone Charged with Bringing Illegal Hormone Into Australia



Sylvester Stallone has been charged with importing human growth hormone in Sydney, Australia.

It has been made official, Sylvester Stallone is charged with bringing a banned muscle-building hormone, called Jintropin, into Australia.

The charge stemmed from a Feb 16th incident during which the actor and his entourage were detained at Sydney's airport when he entered the country to promote his new film "Rocky Balboa." After further search, customs officials claim they found a total of 48 vials of the steroid in a raid of Stallone's hotel room, limousine and private jet.

At a hearing took place Tuesday March 13th in Sydney, the star's lawyers have requested his case to be adjourned until April 24th, with Stallone set to enter a plea on his behalf.

If convicted Stallone could face a maximum penalty of five years in prison with the maximum fine for the offence is Aus$110,000 (US$96,600).

As reported by People, Jintropin is considered a performance-enhancing drug in Australia and can only be imported with a special permit from the government.
