Atheletes sometimes don’t just take drugs for performance enhancement. But sometimes, like regular folks, for recreational purposes as well.
Just heard it on the scanner that former figure skating champ Nicole Bobek has been busted on drug charges. And not just possession or intent to sell, but being part of a drug ring operation.
In one word, wow. What a fall from grace. Here you are representing your country and being a professional athlete. Next moment you are a low life drug peddling criminal.
Nicole Bobek is 31 years old and she made her first court appearance regarding the drug bust today. She basically is from Jersey but was arrested in Florida last week. Nicole Bobek was trying to sell the stuff up in Hudson County.
I have no sympathy for her and I hope the jury gives her the toughest punishment possible.
