Breaking News: Meth Use Can Drastically Affect Your Appearance

nicole-bobeknicole-bobek-mugshotShiver me timbers. Nicole Bobek, former U.S. figure skating champion, has posted bail and been released from custody after she was arrested in connection to a meth distribution ring.

Nicole Bobek, who has homes in New York City and Jupiter, Fla., has been charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Hudson and other North Jersey counties. She was arrested in Florida last week and extradited to New Jersey.

So far, 20 people, including Bobek, have been arrested in connection with the drug ring. An investigation is ongoing.

According to Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazi, Bobek was a “significant player” in a ring that movedĀ  more than $10,000 of meth a week.

Yikes. That ain’t good. But the thing that gets to me the most is how different she looks in these two photos. I bet you a dollar to a donut that if word got out that you could go from looking like Bobek did on the left to how she appears in her mug shot on the right, meth use would be reduced by 50%, which means maybe only 75 people would be using it in this country. Which is good.
