Barry Bonds, once the biggest star in Major League Baseball, struck out in federal court on Wednesday when a federal jury convicted him on one count of obstruction of justice for lying to a grand jury in 2003 about using steroids, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

Earlier in the day, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston called in the jury after they sent word they had reached a partial verdict.

At that time, the foreman informed the judge, as well as both legal teams, they were deadlocked on the three remaining perjury charges and that further discussion was not likely to result in a decision.
