    He was arrested.


    Bodybuilder faces drug charges

    A prominent Long Island body builder has been arrested by federal agents on charges of illegally selling a drug that is in high demand in both the body-building underground and among victims of HIV-AIDs, according to officials.

    David Palumbo, a nationally competitive body builder and the editor of "Rx Muscle" magazine, was charged Wednesday in U.S District Court in Central Islip with illegally distributing a counterfeit version of the human growth hormone, somatropin.

    Palumbo, 36, of 3708 Somerset Dr., Seaford, did not fight his removal to San Diego where federal officials plan to arraign him on charges of conspiracy to distribute somatropin, also known as Serostim, and to traffic in counterfeit products.

    Palumbo's attorney, Marc Gann, of Carle Place, declined to comment, as did Assistant United States Attorney Wayne Baker.

    The drug, which is belived to mimic a normal human growth hormone in fostering muscle development, is legally available by prescription to combat severe wasting among AIDs patients. But it is eagerly sought in the black market of body building for its ability to foster muscle growth, supposedly without side effects, officials say.

    For that reason it is considered by officials to be one of the drugs most widely diverted for illegal use. Somatropin is also costly; a month's dose for an AIDS patient can cost over $5,000. Controversy has surfaced in the medical community over whether the benefits to AIDs patients outweigh the drug's expense and whether less expensive treatments are equally effective.

    Palumbo allegedly bought 200 boxes of a counterfeit version of Serostim from a San Diego supplier in July 2002 and subsequently resold some of the drug to individuals in Colorado and Washington State, according to Thomas Nasiatka, an agent with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. A month's supply is considered to be four boxes, each containing seven injectable doses, one for each day of the week.

    U.S. Magistrate Arlene Lindsey released Palumbo on $50,000 bail on the understanding that he would voluntarily surrender himself to the Justice Department in San Diego. If convicted on the charges, Palumbo could face up to five years in prison.

        lets let this one pan out. You know so many of these stories come out and the fuz put a bad spin on it to make things look worse than what they are.

          I don't know how much of a spin that the article seemed to show. HE is way too damn open about drugs. I wouldn't be surprised if Chad Nicholls gets busted eventually as well. And with all the things going on in San Diego I would have thought DP would have been more careful. That place seems to be a real hot spot for the feds.

                WHAT A FUCKER! That is sad. Why can't they just deal with other crime? I guess the war on drugs is too hard so they decided to narrow it down. Just another reason I hate BUSH and Arnie! WHAT A BENEDICK ARNIE!

                  Yea I had the same thing happen to me. A state trooper came up to me in my gym and said he wanted some of that super creatine I was on. I just looked at him like he was retarded and told him it was nothing more than hard work. He said "yea right" and it was all I could do not to strangle him. I just laughed and walked away.
