VH1 offers the following as reasons why Hulk has not paid his bills: "Is he short on cash? Probably not. Is he planning to hit the slammer intentionally to protect little Nick? No way. Or could it be that he's trying to cut off Linda's cash flow so that she can't lavish any more gifts on her 19-year-old boy toy? Bingo!!"
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." John was in a coma after the accident and will probably need lifelong care.
What do you think? Does the punishment fit the crime?
This isn't because of a new incident, it's for an old one. Nick Bollea, the 17 year-old son of wrestler/reality show star Hulk Hogan, turned himself in to Florida police earlier today and charged with reckless driving.
The accident Bollea was arrested for occurred on August 26. Bollea was racing his Toyota Supra against a Dodge Viper when he lost control and crashed into a palm tree. The family says that Bollea wasn't speeding, though I don't know what their explanation for the accident would be other than "we are confident that the evidence will demonstrate that this was an accident." Bollea was also charged with having tinted windows and having a blood alcohol level of .02 or higher.
Bollea's friend, Nick Graziano, was in the passenger seat, and was critically injured. He remains in a coma.
Hogan, 17, is the son of wrestling icon Hulk Hogan and stars with his dad and other family members on the VH-1 reality show Hogan Knows Best, which is currently in its fourth season. There's no word yet on what caused the accident, but police believe the car was traveling at a high rate of speed.
This isn't the first time he has been in an accident. Hogan was driving a sports car that caught fire in Miami last year.
