Pujols Suing Fired Radio Host Clark Over On-Air Steroid Allegations
Angels 1B Albert Pujols on Friday filed a lawsuit against former MLBer Jack Clark over comments Clark made on St. Louis-based WGNU-AM "accusing Pujols of using steroids." Pujols is seeking unspecified monetary damages that "will be donated to charity." The suit says that Clark's comments "damaged Pujols' reputation, causing him personal humiliation, mental anguish and anxiety." Clark was an "independent contractor who bought airtime from insideStl Enterprises." The suit "does not name" insideStl, WGNU, or Clark's co-host Kevin Slaten as defendants (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 10/5).
