MIAMI - The former owner of the clinic at center of Major League Baseball's recent drug scandal has had his bail revoked because of recent positive tests for cocaine use.
U.S. District Judge Darrin P. Gayles on Monday ordered Anthony Bosch jailed immediately. Bosch tested positive twice in August for cocaine use, after he was released on $100,000 bail under conditions including no use of illegal drugs. Gayles also found Bosch wasn't regularly attending voluntary drug treatment.
Prosecutors say Bosch's clinic, Biogenesis of America, was involved in a conspiracy to provide performance-enhancing drugs to MLB players and even high school athletes. Fourteen MLB players were suspended, including a season-long suspension for New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez.
Bosch is scheduled to plead guilty to the charges next week.
