Stallone guilty importing GH

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) _ Actor Sylvester Stallone pleaded guilty Tuesday to bringing vials of a restricted muscle-building hormone into Australia.

Lawyers for the 60-year-old star of the "Rocky" and "Rambo" movies entered the plea before Sydney’s Darling Centre Local Court on behalf of Stallone, who was charged with importing a banned substance.

Stallone did not appear.

A customs search of Stallone’s bags during a Feb. 16 visit to Sydney to promote his latest movie, "Rocky Balboa," revealed 48 vials of the human growth hormone product, Jintropin.

The court hearing Stallone’s case can only impose a maximum fine worth the equivalent of C$24,000.
