On Thin Ice

Sigh. I guess now we can only await her wedding-night video

(CNN) -- Former figure skating champion and Olympian Nicole Bobek was free on bond Tuesday after New Jersey police accused her of being part of a drug ring. Former figure skating champion Nicole Bobek faces drug charges in New Jersey.

Bobek, 31, who won the U.S. figure skating title in 1995, was arrested at her home in Jupiter, Florida, last week on a charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Hudson County, New Jersey, according to Guy Gregory of the Hudson County prosecutor's office.

This is your Rink Leader on drugs

Quite a crop of little skating princesses we produced in the early 90s, eh?

According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, she was charged as an adult with Home Invasion Robbery in 1994, when she was 17--and before her 1995 championship--but given a youthful offender sentence of only two years probation with a special condition of either 50 hours of community service or 30 days in jail, and then had her probation early-termed after less than two months. Nice deal if you can get it: I don't know about Michigan, but here in Florida that charge can get you life.

I'd say she gets a 0.0 for the smarts competition.
