Los Angeles Angels superstar Albert Pujols is suing former MLB player Jack Clark for comments he made on a St. Louis-based radio show that claimed the former Cardinals slugger used performance-enhancing drugs earlier in his career.
Pujols has denied the accusations ever since the remarks were made in early August.
Now, Kim Bell of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Pujols has filed a lawsuit in order to clear his name by getting a declaration the claims are false.
On Aug. 2, Clark said during his The King and the Ripper radio program on WGNU 920 AM that he knew “for a fact” that Pujols used steroids and performance enhancing drugs.
Clark’s statements are lies that have damaged Pujols’ reputation, causing him personal humiliation, mental anguish and anxiety, the suit says.
The suit calls Clark’s statements “malicious, reckless and outrageous falsehoods.”
