Stallone fined for drug imports

Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone has been convicted and fined for bringing banned substances into Australia during a visit to Sydney in February.

Last week Stallone pleaded guilty to importing 48 vials of human growth hormone and possessing four vials of testosterone.

Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court heard Stallone tried to deceive Customs Officers when they found the growth hormone in his luggage at Sydney airport, by passing off a fake prescription as genuine

Stallone apologised, saying he was using the substances to treat a medical condition, and did not know he was breaking Australian law.

He has been fined just under $3,000 and agreed to pay court costs of $10,000.

The 60-year-old was in Australia in February to plug his latest film Rocky Balboa.
