Dallas' Noonan tied to steroid doctor
A doctor accused of illegally distributing steroids allegedly told a pro football player that Lyle Alzado and the Dallas Cowboys' Danny Noonan were among his patients, court records in Los Angeles show.
The unidentified NFL player was working as a federal informant when he visited Dr. Walter F. Jekot in July 1990, seeking a prescription for muscle-building anabolic steroids.
The visit was detailed in an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court by Customs Service Agent Rodney J. Staudinger.
An agent for Noonan denied that the defensive lineman took steroids or was a patient of Jekot's.
"He has tested negative in random drug tests for 2 1/2 years," Tom Condon said of Noonan, who has played four years for the Cowboys. "Danny's a good guy."
Alzado, a former Los Angeles Raiders player who has admitted taking steroids and blames his inoperable brain tumor on them, could not be reached for comment yesterday.
Jekot's lawyer, Victor Sherman, said the affidavit revealed a "classic case of entrapment."
Notre Dame quarterback Rick Mirer and linebacker Demetrius DuBose were among three students arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct at an off-campus party, South Bend, Ind., police said.
Mirer and DuBose were arrested at about 11 p.m. Friday as officers began to clear about 500 people attending several parties in an apartment complex. An off-duty officer working security at the apartments called police. Officers were told management had asked that all those who were not residents leave.
John Heisler, Notre Dame sports information director, said it was too early to determine if the players would be held out of next Saturday's season opener against Indiana.
