Knoblauch Issued a Subpoena

From the AFP:

WASHINGTON (AFP) — A House of Representatives committee issued a subpoena to force former New York Yankees slugger Chuck Knoblauch to testify at a deposition on baseball doping after he refused to respond voluntarily.

The lawmakers used their power to compel an appearance from Knoblauch after he failed to contact the US House Oversight committee when asked to give a sworn deposition in connection with hearings of Major League Baseball doping.

"The Committee has taken this step because Mr. Knoblauch failed to respond to the invitation to participate voluntarily in a deposition or transcribed interview and the February 13 hearing," a statement from chairman Henry Waxman and ranking minority member Tom Davis said.

Hey Chuck, when the Government calls, respond. Idiot.
