WASHINGTON — The judge declared a mistrial in baseball star Roger Clemens' perjury trial over allegations that he lied to a House committee about steroid use.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said Clemens could not be assured a fair trial after prosecutors showed jurors evidence against his orders in the second day of testimony today.

Walton scheduled a Sept. 2 hearing to determine whether to hold a new trial.

Like other players who have been indicted in baseball's steroids era, Clemens has not been charged with drug crimes but instead is accused of lying about drug use. Clemens told a House committee under oath in 2008 that he never used performance-enhancing drugs during a standout 23-season career in which he won a record seven Cy Young Awards as his league's top pitcher.
