SAN FRANCISCO -- Former world class American cyclist Tammy Thomas screamed at the jurors after being convicted of perjury and lying to grand jury probing a sports steroid distribution ring.
"Look me in the eye, look me in the eye," Thomas screamed after the jurors' verdict was read in federal court. "Look me in the eye and tell me you mean what you did. Look me in the eye, you can't do it."
Thomas was found guilty of three counts of perjury and one of obstruction of justice for saying she did not take performance-enhancing drugs.
