Steroid dealer has past ties to UT Football program

If convicted, dealer faces 20 years to life in prison.

New information about a man caught up in a federal steroid bust. KEYE TV has been doing some digging and found not only has one of the men been involved in a similar scandal before, but the case involved University of Texas football players. It goes all the way back to the early nineties, 1991 to be exact.  Tim Bruner who is now charged in the federal case was named in that UT investigation. Bruner calls himself the “people’s champion.” He has an impressive resume of lifting championships to back up that title.  A deeper look at his background reveals he’s carried more than just weights. March 1991 Bruner was named in the UT football player steroid investigation.  According to archived articles, Bruner reportedly admitted to buying prescriptions for steroids, and engaged in two transactions with Texas football players. Now federal agents accuse Bruner of something similar. In court documents, they claim they saw Bruner handing steroids to Timothy Moore outside a Gold’s Gym in Austin. We also learned that Timothy Moore runs Seven Oaks Hormone Replacement Therapy.  We called and he told us over the phone he would not talk to anyone. Both men are charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance.  They could face 20 years to life in prison if convicted. There were 22 people in total arrested in this bust including a Williamson County constable.
