missy giove with monkey during a norba national downhill race before facing marijuana possession drug charges

I dug this photo out of the garage of (from left to right) me, Missy Giove, Sweetie and Missy’s mechanic at the time, Monkey.  This is from a NORBA National DH race long ago.  Not shown: the other (alleged) monkey on her back.

Now 37, Missy “the Missile” Giove is charged with “conspiring to possess and distribute more than 100kg of marijuana.  She’s being held on $250,000 bond and facing a possible $2 million fine and up to 40 years in prison after being caught with more than 200 pounds of marijauna.

Authorities seized the drugs from the back of a truck she was driving in upstate NY.  Her alleged partner in crime, Eric Canori, is right there with her in U.S. Marshall custody after authorities found about another 150 pounds at his Saratoga Springs, NY, home…oh, and $1 million cash hidden in the basement. WTF!

Public defender Tim Austin alleged the drugs were planted in Giove’s truck, possibly even by police.  More here and here.  I guess those Reebok ads didn’t pay as well as one would have hoped…
