Tennis players coerced to crack

by Kirk Amos

November 03, 2005

Two C of C tennis players, Priscilla Roberts, 19, and Bastian Moldehnke, 23, returned to their car on Oct. 22 unaware that one crack cocaine addict had a new and more forceful method of pushing his product.

According to police reports, the two C of C students were held up at knife-point, abducted, taken to an undisclosed location on Mary Street and forced to smoke crack cocaine.

Students may have heard a similar story in rumors circulating the campus.

“All the teammates are talking about it,” said senior tennis player Seth Bowman. Although the subject makes for popular chat all over campus, the general consensus is “we don’t really know anything.”

Like many college stories, the Saturday night of the abduction began with the students consuming large amounts of alcohol, with an estimated 30 alcoholic beverages for Moldehnke, and 20 for Roberts.

Drunken and tired, the couple found themselves locked out of Roberts’ Lexus in a parking lot off of Meeting Street.

At around 2 a.m., Roberts and Moldehnke attempted to unlock the car with a clothes hanger. They were approached by a seemingly friendly man who at first offered to open the door for $10. Instead, he pulled out a knife.

The aggressor, a lonely criminal, demanded only their company. The students stayed with him from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., spending most of the time in front of a white house on Mary Street. It was there that the man allegedly forced them to smoke crack.

When daylight rolled around, Roberts remembered that she stored an extra key for her Lexus at her apartment, so the students left their abductor, retrieved the key and drove to Moldehnke’s apartment on Burns Lane.

The next morning, Oct. 23, the students began worrying about being submitted to a random drug test, and decided to call the women’s tennis coach, Angelo Anastopoulo, which initiated a chain of phone calls.

Anastopoulo called C of C athletics director, Jerry Baker, who contacted Public Safety, which led to notification of the Charleston Police Department.

The athletics department did give random drug tests this week, according to Baker, but Moldehnke and Roberts would have had no premonition of it.

“The only thing that they would have known was about tennis practice that morning,” said Baker.

While waiting for the coach the morning after the alleged event, Roberts took a walk down King Street and allegedly bumped into the perpetrator and was forced to smoke crack cocaine again.

According to the Post and Courier, Roberts “became apprehensive” about filing a police report, but Moldehnke “insisted on going through with the process.”

The cops described them as “smelling strongly of alcohol,” and as giving “few details about the suspect despite allegedly spending several hours with him. They were also “nervous and evasive in their answers.” The police are still investigating; results won’t be made public until a later time.

Roberts has left the College and returned to her hometown of Peachtree, Ga. She is reportedly enrolled in a 30-day rehabilitative clinic for undisclosed reasons. Her family refused to comment.

Baker had little to say about the police investigation.

“We don’t get involved with the police. We’ll take the appropriate action following the results,” he said. Baker also said, “They’re great kids. They are successful in school and nice to talk with.” Other faculty members agree.

Roberts is a talented freshman, coming to the College after being ranked no. 7 in the South and no. 43 in the nation for both 18-and-under and 16-and-under divisions. Her past accomplishments include winning both the Clemson and Montgomery Designated Tournaments in the 16-and-under, the Southern Doubles Tournament for ages 14, 16 and 18-and-under and playing number one singles for McIntosh High School for four years. She has held a 3.8 GPA at C of C.

Moldehenke, a scholarship athlete whose 2005 singles standing reads 7-3, hails from Germany. He also declined comment.

umm, it would be my assumption that they had smoked crack, gotten scared about the drug showing up in a urine analysis, and fabricated this story to come up with an excuse if they had a positive test :shrug:

they really should have put more than 10mins thought into their cover story. it's dangerous to assume that just because they have stupid written on their foreheads everyone else does too and would fall for it. this was seriously one of the funniest things i've read all day, right up there with the 15 person police sting at my university to catch a guy that was demanding a $100 ransom for some girl's ipod that he'd stolen :tape:

As the god Rick James so eloquently put it:
"Crack is a helluva drug!".

hahaha, I'm from South Carolina, and Charleston is like 3 hours from me. C of C is the lamest school, I hate it. It's like the dumb southern kids school; I wouldn't be surprised if the story were a cover for silly kids.

King Street is great, though. It has yummy shopping.

if you are from the area, please post any updates to this story you come across...

Do these people really think their story is believable?

I have no idea. But I'll check the local paper. I doubt they'll publish anything.

Lol, that's the funniest story i've heard in a while. But honestly, any poor bum on the street isn't going to want to share his Blow/ Bazulco/ Big C/ Blizzard/ Candy/ Coke/ Mojo/ Sniff with anyone because the bum wouldv'e spent a lot of money or killed a lot of people to get a hold of it. I'm sure any self respecting bum wouldn't 'blow' it all away so to speak by giving some for free to a bunch of teenagers!!

lol what a bunch of dickheads! :)

They should confisquate their driver's licences for even attempting to drive after 20-30 drinks. :rolleyes:

:cuckoo: @ being forced to smoke crack. No way a junkie just gives away his stuff like that. Or maybe it was a very rich junkie :p
You know they say crack is so addictive you only need one try. It's 10 times the effect of cocaine. :tape:

They spend four hours toking up at some random man's house. Who's the real crackhead? I can't imagine them being restrained while they were smoking crack. Even harder to imagine that the two of them, athletic and all, couldn't grab something and hit the man with it and take off running.
