Nick HoganOn August 26th, Hulk Hogan's son Nick was terribly injured in a car crash in Florida. Also in the crash was Nick's friend, John Graziano, who was critically injured after the car smashed into the median, flipped over and finally crashed into a palm tree. Later that fall, the wrestling champ's son was charged with reckless driving, having a blood alcohol level of .02 or higher and having tinted windows on his Toyota Supra.

On May 9th, after pleading "no contest," Nick Hogan (nee Bollea) was sentenced to eight months in prison. He was also charged with five years probation and one hundred hours community service per year. In addition, Nick must attend a DUI school and is forbidden to drink alcohol for the duration of his probation. Hulk and daughter Brooke begged the judge for leniency but John's family and girlfriend asked for punishment. His mother said, "I'm not seeking revenge. Only justice."
