Another figure skater is facing legal trouble.

Former U.S. figure skating champion Nicole Bobek has been charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Hudson County, New Jersey.

Bobek, who won the women’s U.S. figure skating title in 1995, was arrested last week in Florida and brought to New Jersey to appear in Central Judicial Processing Court via videolink Monday from the Hudson County Jail in Kearny, N.Y.

The 31-year-old, who has homes in New York and Jupiter, Fla., is accused of being involved in a northern New Jersey drug ring. LINK

Since Wyatt blogged about Joyce Dewitt’s arrest for drunk driving, I figured I would cover Nicole Bobek’s drug charges. What the hell? Another celebrity / athlete who couldn’t keep their life together. It seems like that’s the rule anymore, rather than the exception.

It’s sad to see people who have everything throw it all away. Steve McNair, Michael Jackson, and Lindsey Lohan all come to mind. I guess fame and fortune aren’t what life is supposed to be all about after all is said and done.

    It is amazing to see how poor choices ruin your life when you are a celebrity and everyone can follow it.

    Sometimes Brother Denny people get what they wish for and they can’t handle it. Fame and fortune can be a Trojan Horse.

    The effort and dedication it takes to become a world class figure skater such as Nicole Bobek was is all consuming. When she finally reached the point where she could take a breath and have a life – apparently she had absolutely no moral guideposts upon which to steady herself! She was an unusually emotional skater to begin with. Somehow, her being in trouble of this sort doesn’t totally surprise me. First Oksana Baiul, then Tonya Harding, now Nicole Bobek. That’s on the female side – and of course, Christopher Bowman comes to mind for the male skaters! She is a beautiful young woman and a talented skater – without too many steadying influences in her life.

    You can all leave your comments and opinions but who are we to judge. I have met Nicole and her mom more than once in Ames, Ia during the Champions on Ice Tour… They are both the sweetest and kindest people and I have nothing but respect for them. I have pictures and other gifts I know they went out of there way to send me and I will cherish these things always… Why is it that we are so easy to judge people that we see on TV and don’t really know them? In this country we are innocent until proven guilty except for what the media trashes celeberties for!!!!
