Medals brought him money and as they say more money more problems.Asbel was unable to handle the fame and fortune that followed him after his success. He lost his way with pictures of him in compromising situations with a lady circulated on the internet.

Asbel would later find himself in great trouble when he was caught up in a doping scandal. The IAAF disciplinary tribunal found him guilty of using an illegal compound identified as EPO after subjecting his blood samples to rigorous tests.
He would be banned from participating in all athletic related activities for a period of 4 years.The ban was effective as from last year.
