Coleman was a customer of an online supplement company, which was investigated for drugs. There is no evidence that Coleman himself was a purchaser of the drugs, nor was it even implicated. . In 2003, during the BALCO convicted heroin dealer and former track star Tim Montgomery testified under oath to a federal grand jury that Victor Conte had bragged about getting Coleman to use Winstrol, a controlled substance, which was inadmisable as heresay. An ongoing investigation by a New York State grand jury into online pharmacies indicates that Coleman allegedly received fraudulent prescriptions for steroids . Coleman himself has denied steroid usage and this is supported by testimonial from this well respected doctor on the same site:"Anybody can be really, really good with dedication and hard work," says Dr. Ben Levine, director of the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. "But to be the best, you have to have some gene endowment, as well as appropriate work ethic." Dr. Levine goes on to say that Coleman's physique is entirely possible without resorting to anabolic steroids. Coleman himself denies the charges, claiming that he stopped reading Sports Illustrated after it ran a story which referred to steroids as the "Wheaties of pro bodybuilders." Coleman says he is annoyed at the persistent assumptions to the contrary.
