Agassi Lied About Crystal Meth Use


Tennis great Andre Agassi says in his new autobiography that he used the drug crystal meth in 1997, then lied about the nature of his problem when he failed a drug test.

Agassi says in the book, called Open, that after he failed the drug test, he wrote a letter telling authorities that his drink was spiked with crystal meth by an assistant named "Slim." The ATP tour threw out the case at the time.

"Then I come to the central lie of the letter," Agassi writes in the autobiography, according to an excerpt published by the Associated Press. "I say that recently I drank accidentally from one of Slim's spiked sodas, unwittingly ingesting his drugs. I ask for understanding and leniency and hastily sign it: Sincerely.

"I feel ashamed, of course. I promise myself that this lie is the end of it," he writes.
