(Newser) – Former US Olympic figure skater Nicole Bobek has a new career, allegedly: drug dealer. Bobek, 31, pleaded not guilty yesterday to a charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, the AP reports. A New Jersey prosecutor tells Fox affiliate WNYW-TV that the 1995 US champion “was actively involved in the upper echelon of this ring.”
