SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ― Federal prosecutors are fighting to show the jury in Barry Bonds’ perjury trial a trove of evidence alleging the slugger mistreated his wife, girlfriends and other people around him.
They submitted in a court filing Tuesday grand jury transcripts and interviews investigators conducted with several witnesses that they plan to call during the trial scheduled to start March 21.
The witnesses include Bonds’ former mistress, Kimberly Bell, his personal doctor and a childhood friend who served as his assistant and personal shopper during his playing days.
All three have told investigators that Bonds mistreated his domestic help and his personal trainer Greg Anderson, who is refusing to testify at the former San Francisco Giants’ slugger’s trial.
Defense lawyers are objecting to their statements as irrelevant to the perjury case.
