Barry Bonds Trial Becomes “Humiliating,” Ex-Mistress Takes Stand
March 29 / Dan Fogarty / SportsGrid
If you had Day 5 in your "Moment When The Barry Bonds Trial Would get Extremely Uncomfortable" office pool, then you're in luck, because things got weird on Monday.
Yesterday, one of Bonds' ex-mistresses, Kimberly Bell, took the stand, and among the topics of conversation: bloating, sexual dysfunction, and the time Bonds allegedly threatened to "cut out [Bell's] breast implants."
ESPN's TJ Quinn and Mark Fainaru-Wada broke down Monday's proceedings:
As bad as Bonds came off during Bell's testimony, and despite yesterday probably being the most embarrassing of his life, Bonds' legal team came out ahead. Cristina Arguedas, a Law-And-Order-esque defense attorney known for being ruthless, repeatedly brought up a book project that Bell had in the works with a crime writer named Aphrodite Jones.
The way Arguedas painted it, the project hinged on steroid use. This, obviously, would call Bell's credibility into question.
