Clemens Sues McNamee (Updated with Complaint)

The AP is reporting that Roger Clemens is suing trainer Brian McNamee for defamation, evidently beating McNamee (who has threatened suit against Clemens) to court.  This is despite Clemens's professed hesitation to bring suit:

And then everybody’s talking about sue, sue, sue. Should I sue? Well, yeah, let me exhaust — let me, let me just spend,” he said, gesturing as if he were peeling off bills. “Let me keep spending. But I’m going to explore what I can do, and then I want to see if it’s going to be worth it, worth all the headache.”

Updated: The Smoking Gun (naturally) has the complaint.
