Shawne Merriman Confirms He Was Stopped at US Border, Denies Steroids Allegation

Yesterday we brought you a report by the Buffalo Daily News (Shawne Merriman Busted for Steroids Near US & Canadian Border?) claiming that Shawne Merriman was trying to transport steroids into the US.

Merriman has denied the report, but if you know how to read between the lines you can see his denial only leads to more questions.

Merriman addressed it earlier tonight on Twitter, explaining that he is “disappointed by a story that was written by a Buffalo writer regarding a routine stop at the Canadian border a few weeks ago.”  The statement implies that something indeed occurred as Merriman re-entered the U.S.

“To clarify,” Merriman added, “there was absolutely NO steroids found in my vehicle & there were NO charges against me.  I’ve received a great welcome by the community and fans.  I’ve worked my butt off to have a great season.

Merriman confirms that he was stopped and denies no steroids was found, but doesn’t deny something was found.  HGH isn’t a steroid if you want to nitpick.  There are several performance enhancement drugs that wouldn’t technically be considered steroids.

So while Merriman might not be lying, I don’t necessarily believe he is telling the entire truth.  Don’t worry the truth will come out, it always does.
