Poor man

He gets arrested for steroids and there are repeat offenders on " To Catch a Predator". Yeah I would say LE is a little confused priority wise.

That sucks. Bodybuilding is very much not a popular phenomenon over here, but among people that do follow bodybuilding, Yamagishi is a big deal. I’m sorry his entire life is getting buttfucked right now. What the hell was he doing holding all that shit on his person at the airport for!?

The irony is that he could do and possess as much as he wanted in his home country. But the only place where he can go to maximize his career will land him in prison for the same substances.

I often wonder where many pros keep their stash. Take a look at Jay, you know he keeps some in his house… I just wonder when LE starts raiding pro BBers houses… then BBing and AAS will get an even worse name…

What type of fucked up world do we live in?

Oh btw, the reason I said that about Jay is you can actually see the steroids in his fridge… the dipshit should at least stash them somewhere else when he’s shooting one of his videos…

Here it is: http://youtube.com/watch?v=_ns7LoW5qTc

Ignore what comes after the first bit…

That is a clip from his video “New, Improved, and Beyond.” Good luck to him when LE sees that.

The thing that surprises me most about Hide getting busted is the fact he is a pro. May not make sense when you first read that, but I was under the impression many of the pros had prescriptions for all their shit. Granted, those prescriptions couldn’t be considered normal HRT, but I was under the assumption many of them went to a friendly endo to get their shit. I figured Hide would do the same…

I’ll quit rambling now.

Damn shame,This mans career is pretty much over the way I see it. Obviously, stupid on his part for bringing all that gear on him but either way LE is just nailing pretty damn hard now…I also heard that Dennis James was recently busted again helping suppliers somewhere over seas or somethng of that nature.

I’m surprised they busted him with a felony for each substance. It makes sense, but I just never though about it. Any more it just seems like they’re all “steroids.” Good to know I guess.

Goddamned DA (or whoever) always wants to stick intent to distribute onto whatever charge would be reasonable in any case. There is serious corruption in law enforcement, and the destruction of a man’s life is perfectly “legal,” in pursuit of career advancement and status enhancement. It is really sickening. This guy almost certainly is not distributing.

I guess it’s hard for Pro Bodybuilders to find juice in California LMAO. I’m sorry but WHAT A FUCKING IDIOT!!!

Now listen closely everyone. if you decide to use steroids. Rule number one. Do not cross ANY borders with ANY drugs in your possession.

I hadn’t seen that. They’re really trying to stick it to him. I seperate felony for each drug and distribution. Give me a break. I’ve wondered for awhile why more pros havn’t gottne busted considering the hysteria over steroids the past few years. Also am I wrong or is HCG not a controlled substance? He just had a break-out year too.

American Prisons are overflowing, and yet it looks like ‘they’ would be happy to put yet more people inside for drugs such as steroids.

Bizarre.

I feel for this guy. I’m in a fraction of the hot water he is, and yet I can relate for sure.

My cousin works for a state penitentiary in the US. He has done many cycles (actually was first to show me how to use them) and the times we spoke about life “inside” he said prisoners basically can get anything they want, whenever they want and the only problem is the quantity of food. They try to controll it, but there are snitches and it’s a whole network going on there. How is that for fucked up?

2 years ago I had the pleasure of visiting Thailand and in the gym I trained there were 2 European Bodybuilders, 1 Australian and 1 American “pro”. All were doing their cycles there and they were not going to take anything back to their countries. It was interesting to talk to them. Maybe things have changed because of the recent busts.

Does anyone find it odd(serious question, not sarcasm) that it was reported he was meeting Milos at the airport given his recent trouble with LE?

HCG is a controlled substance in the USA as far as I know. I believe one of the charges against Hide was possession for sale or something like that of HCG (chorionic gonadotropin).

looks like he has quite the chemistry set in there! haha we used to keep my insulin in the fridge door too when i was younger…

They probly charged him with intent to distribute and possession so they can ple-bargen to just possession. Our courts are fucked up. I always get 4 tickets when i get pulled over for speeding and when i go to court to fight it, they make it seem like they are doing me a favor by dropping the bullshit charges and i get stuck with just the speeding. Or they are making an example of this guy.

I don’t feel bad, Michael Vick is an idiot when he attempts to fly with weed but everybody feels sorry for a BODYBUILDER trying to fly internationally with steriods? Sorry some things are just stupid and asking to get caught.

the end up

All charges except for a misdemeanor Viagra possession charge were dropped? Wonder what’s goin on there. I hope if I ever get caught with 6 different kinds of drugs that I get off so easily.
