WASHINGTON -- Miguel Tejada has been charged with lying to Congress about steroids.

The Washington Post reported federal prosecutors accused Tejada of making misrepresentations to Congressional staffers during an interview focusing on the prevalence of steroids in baseball.

The charge came in "a criminal information," a document that can only be filed with the defendant's consent, according to the report. Tejada, who now plays for the Houston Astros, is scheduled to appear at 11 a.m. Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Washington, court officials said.

Prosecutors did not charge Tejada with lying about allegations concerning his own use of performance-enhancing drugs, according to the report. However, they have alleged that Tejada gave false statements to Congressional staffers regarding his conversations with another player about steroids and human growth hormone.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
