SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Barry Bonds pleaded not guilty Friday to charges he lied to federal investigators about using performance-enhancing drugs.
The home run king's arraignment in U.S. District Court marked his first public appearance since a Nov. 15 indictment charging him with four counts of perjury and one of obstruction of justice.
If he's convicted of all five charges he could spend more than two years in prison.
Wearing a dark blue suit and tie and accompanied by his wife, Bonds stepped from a black sport-utility vehicle and waded through a crush of television cameras, reporters and onlookers outside the Phillip Burton Federal Building. He went through the metal detectors and waved to the crowd before stepping into the courthouse elevator and heading to the 19th floor for the hearing.
