Stallone fined for importing drugs

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -- Actor Sylvester Stallone has been formally convicted of importing restricted muscle-building hormones into Australia. He was ordered to pay the equivalent of more than ten-thousand dollars in fines and court costs.

A deputy chief magistrate said the "Rocky" and "Rambo" star had failed to show he had a valid prescription for vials of human growth hormone that were in his luggage when he arrived for a promotional tour in February. Stallone also had failed to declare the male hormone testosterone on a customs entry form, although he had a valid prescription.

Stallone, who was not present in court, had pleaded guilty last week.
