Nick Bollea, son of former wrestler Hulk Hogan, was sentenced to 8 months in jail plus probation for his reckless driving leading to an accident last year. Nick Bollea Hogan was sentenced today to eight months behind bars and was led off to begin his sentence immediately. He will also have to be on five years of probation, lose his driving license for three years and 500 hours of community service. The 17-year-old son of former pro-wrestler Hulk Hogan entered an "open plea" today and after hearing testimony from the Graziano family, the judge ruled on the case. The jail plus probation sentence came as part of the plea agreement - Nick Bollea was initially facing a maximum sentence of 5 years behind bars. Hulk Hogan's son also avoided felony conviction on his record once he turns 18 later this summer.
The accident which lead to jail time for Nick Bollea happened in August of 2007, when the young Hogan was behind the wheel of his Toyota Supra when he lost control and slammed into a palm tree near downtown Clearwater. The accident seriously injured both Nick Hogan and his passenger, John Graziano, who remains in a coma. "What Al-Qaeda couldn't do to my son, [Nick Bollea] did," said Edward Grazian, the father of John Graziano, who was a Marine.
