Chargers | Foley may have been in steroid-induced rage when he was shot

The Associated Press reports prosecutors in the case against San Diego Chargers LB Steve Foley believe the linebacker may have been in a steroid-induced rage when he was shot Sunday, Sept. 3, by an off-duty police officer. While there is no evidence of Foley using steroids, prosecutors wish to test his blood due to his history of problems with law enforcement. "His history of aggressive and even violent contact with law enforcement indicates the possibility of more than mere alcohol involvement," wrote criminal investigator Dan Nordell. "(Steroids) can cause erratic behavior in those that use them. This has been given names like 'roid rage for the uncontrollable outbursts and violence experienced by some users."
