Olympian Alleged Victim of Date Rape Drug

4/22/2008 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Olympian allegedly slipped drugOrange County sheriffs are investigating an alleged drugging of Pasha Grishuk, the biggest ice dancer in the world. Cops now tell TMZ the drug is GHB, commonly called the "date rape" drug.

The two-time Olympic gold medal winner attended a business meeting at the swanky St. Regis in the OC on April 12. Grishuk ordered a glass of wine at the table, which she briefly left unattended. After taking a few more sips, Pasha noticed a half-dissolved pill at the bottom of her glass. By the time cops and paramedics arrived, Pasha was feeling numb and ill. They also found a second glass she had been drinking from in the lounge and it had residue from a pill as well.

Jim Amormino, a spokesperson for the OC Sheriffs Dept. says, "The incident is under investigation and we are waiting for toxicology reports to come back."

LA TIMES OC ARTICLE MAY 22 Bail denied for securities lawyer in investment fraud case
Jeanne Rowzee, who is accused of a scam that bilked investors out of $20 million, is deemed a flight risk.


She was charged Tuesday, suspected of defrauding some 150 investors who gave tens of millions of dollars to her and others working with her to put into sophisticated investment vehicles known as private investment in public equities, or PIPEs. Prosecutors allege that Rowzee instead diverted the money to herself and others.

Rowzee, Santa Ana insurance salesman James R. Halstead and others also are named as defendants in more than half a dozen civil lawsuits alleging the same fraud. Only Rowzee has been charged.

How sad that the price of working incredibly hard your entire life training and performing means that nutcases will try to poison you.

Who the hell would do that? Sounds political to me. Is she Russian? What is her nationality? Did she try and defect or something? Can't figure out why someone would do that to her - and in both drinks, sounds like they wanted to make sure and get the job done.

Hard lesson to learn ladies. Don't leave your drink glasses unattended for a second. If you do, get a fresh drink!! Folks are nuts nowadays.

I wonder if she did it herself - it's a heck of a way to get oneself into non-sports news stories
