Sly charged pittance in HGH case

Sylvester Stallone was convicted Monday of importing illegal muscle hormones into Australia and ordered to pay $10,651, the AP reports. The fading action star couldn’t prove he had a prescription for the 48 vials of human growth hormone Jintropin found in his luggage during a stop in Sydney in February. While the 60-year-old Stallone had no comment, what’s funny is that of those fines levied, only $2,451 was actually for the charges. The other $8,200 was for prosecutor fees. Who’s getting rich off drugs now?

Meanwhile, his new movie John Rambo is 10 times as bloody as its predecessors and 100 times as over the top. Wait, Over The Top was a different Sly flick ...
