According to court documents, Brian McNamee, the former trainer of retired MLB pitcher Roger Clemens, was arrested Monday for a DWI in Long Island, reports Darran Simon of Newsday.

McNamee was reportedly also charged with operating a vehicle while impaired by drugs, driving while ability impaired by drugs or alcohol, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and other misdemeanor violations. He was taken into police custody on Monday morning after a minor collision.

He was released on $2,500 bond.

McNamee previously testified before a congressional committee that he injected Clemens, who’s seven Cy Young Awards are the most in MLB history, with performance enhancing drugs. 

Clemens vehemently denied McNamee’s accusations when he testified in 2008. In 2012, Clemens was acquitted of perjury and obstruction charges that were a result of his denials.

McNamee sued Clemens for defamation after the pitcher accused him of lying and fabricating evidence in his testimony. The lawsuit was settled in March.
