I log in only to see that poor Nicole Bobek, 1995 U.S. National Champ, is been arrested and charged with conspiracy to distribute Meth...tragic!
Even more tragic is this mugshot...scary!
Apparently, she was quite the big wig in this Northern Jersey drug ring. Bobek was arrested along with twenty other individuals involved in the drug ring...talk about a crackdown!
Gosh, rewind back to her 1995 Nationals win. She was such a joy to watch on the ice, bouncing around with such eppervessance. My favorite performance is her 1997 U.S. Nationals Free Skate (seen below), nobody cared her jump content was watered down because it was still so good!
She always was a free spirit and a bit of a drama queen. How many coaches did she go through? Didn't she have plans to become a pairs skater? Did she ever perform a triple jump as a professional?
To be so talented and sink to such a low place...really I just pity her. Such unfulfilled possibility there.
