Hulk Hogan’s son was drinking before crash

November 7th, 2007 // 114 Comments

Nick Bollea, the son of wrestler Hulk Hogan, was arrested this morning for reckless driving involving serious bodily injury. Nick voluntarily turned himself in to police when he learned of the charges. He was involved in a one-car accident in August that left his friend John Graziano in a coma. He has yet to awaken. The Hogan Bollea family issued the following statement following Nick’s arrest:

“Nick and the entire Hogan Bollea family are saddened that criminal charges have been filed in regards to the tragic single car accident on August 26, 2007. Nick will meet and answer these charges in the appropriate arena a court of law. The family’s primary focus and concern still remains for the continued recovery of Nick’s longtime friend John Graziano. The Bolleas will also continue to stand by the Graziano family and help them in any way they can. The tragedy to both families is compounded by the fact that unfortunately John was not wearing his seatbelt. Thankfully, Nick was wearing his. Because of what happened to John, the entire Bollea family will make it a priority to increase public awareness about the importance of always wearing your seatbelt. There has been much speculation as to the speed and wet road conditions surrounding this accident. Although all the evidence has not been evaluated, preliminary reports from the experts indicate that this was not, in fact, a high-speed accident. Because Nick is still a juvenile and has no prior criminal record, we are disappointed that he is being charged as an adult offender. However, we are confident that the evidence will demonstrate that this was an accident. We ask all who follow these events to keep an open mind as to the facts until they have been ultimately determined. Finally, we thank all who have prayed for John’s recovery and ask for your continued support and prayers.”

Well, it turns out shortly after the Hogans made this statement, the facts were ultimately determined. Nick Bollea was drinking prior to the crash and was racing another car. TMZ reports:

In addition to being arrested for reckless driving involving serious bodily injury, cops also cited Hogan for use of a motor vehicle in the commission of a felony, a person under the age of 21 operating a vehicle with a breath-alcohol level of .02 or higher and having and Illegal window tint.

But, you know what? It’s cool. This is totally the fault of the kid who didn’t wear his seatbelt. I’ve always maintained that, when in doubt, blame the person in the coma. Drag racing drunk? Pssh. That’s nothing. But not wearing a seatbelt? Christ, don’t people have any respect for the law anymore? Is it possible to put a comatose patient in the electric chair? You know, really make an example of him.


  1. Sam

    Not as bad as his dad. Ever see him in his wrestling shorts? Should have been arrested for an illegal taint.

  2. p911gt10c

    This guy needs to spend some time in jail.

    oh, and #1, you’re a loser.

  3. hes a douche… and to think they are practically saying that John’s to blame because he wasnt wearing a seatbelt, is cold hearted. True he should have been buckled up, but Nick should learn to drive

  4. Bigheadmike

    sad sad accident…….

    LOL. Yeah, I definitely don’t think Nick’s rep thought his statement through. Nice call.

  6. gotmilk?

    i love how because of his reckless driving, it’s 100% other kid’s fault that he’s in a coma. yeah sure, he should be wearing a seat belt, but this douchestick needs to take some accountability.

  7. hate him

    ew, he is so ugly and slow.
    he was also born without a chin and jaw.

  8. Inconsiderate Prick

    I totally have to side with the fish on this one. The victim definitely had this coming, and his punishment should be severe.

  9. nagger please

    The tree he hit was at fault..

    According to reports, John Graziano was conscious at the scene of the accident. Within 5 minutes, Hulk Hogan and daughter Brooke arrived, and Brooke – who’s certified in CPR – squatted down to check on him. Unfortunately her zipper gave way and her cock popped out and slapped down repeatedly on John’s face, causing him to go into a self-protective coma. He’s actually awakened many times but he always bangs his head against the bed railing to knock himself out again.

    Drunk driving crashes are NOT accidents. Drinking before driving is a choice – a criminal choice.

  12. antoine

    I like how the Hogan family is going to bring awareness to wearing a seat belt but not to drinking and driving. Be a man Nick and take responsibility for your actions!

  13. Bella

    if its true and Nick Hogan was drinking then be a man and face the charges….enuff of this bullshit that the “Hogan Bollea family are saddened that criminal charges” …Saddened??!!….be sad for the kid that was left in the coma and also the comment “compounded by the fact that unfortunately John was not wearing his seatbelt. Thankfully, Nick was wearing his”…..Thankfully??…..more like you better pray your bratty son doesnt get charged for vehicular manslaughter if the other kid passes away…. the Hulk will pray for everything and make things all better anyways…..and then maybe his flabby gold diggin wife will need to go find a J-O-B to support her lavish spending habits on non-sence and dogs…and dont get me started on Brookie Hogan…well I kinda like her but im sure she’ll defend all of her her kins actions and then that would piss me right off so fuk her lil brat ass too….

  14. veggi

    John Graziano served in the Marines in Iraq. This is God’s punishment for killing innocent women and children.

  15. Frack

    What an asshat. He drank, he drove, he crashed – HIS FAULT!

  16. Don’t be an asshole, 15. Geez.

  17. AmeriCanadian

    What a complete and utter shit-for-brains.

  18. Micky Mc

    VH-1 needs to cancel Hogan Knows Best.

    On the next surreal life: Hulkster, Don Imus & Dog Chapman

  19. He won’t serve any jail time.

  20. babyscrambler

    #19- don’t forget Michael Richards

  21. nagger please

    I hope this pisses off the victim’s family and they demand jail for this idiot.

  22. Micky Mc

    @21 good one.

  23. Auntie Kryst

    Fuck you, that sounds like veggi’s troll. On the topic at hand, I’m no longer a Hulkamaniac. What a piss poor statement blaming the guy in a coma.

  24. Phallic

    Bollea? What the fuck is that? THE LIES JUST KEEP COMING.

    Anyway, what a poor hairline for a 17 year-old.

  25. veggi

    imagine that. my troll is back. fucking douche.

  26. bosendorfer

    Ahem…tough shit, asshole!

  27. Micky Mc

    @15 Fred Phelps! Didn’t figure you for the Superfish type…

  28. he is an ugly slug

    he is going to be hard to look at really soon.
    at least his dad had shoulders, muscles, and a jaw line.

  29. stupid

    Nick is only 17! He won’t do any hard time! His friend should have been wearing a seatbelt…but who gave a 17 year old alcohol??

  30. Debagger

    This D-BAG’s father was also just honored with the coveted “Father of the Year” award. His son really exhibits such fine qualities; you know, like drinking and driving and shit.

    Therefore, I nominate my own father for the Congressional Medal of Honor for encouraging me to beat women and children and taking my shits on our neighbor’s lawn. Who seconds this motion?

  31. Big

    You know brother
    #15 go fuck yourself Veggi troll
    #11 go fuck yourself and I wish a coma on your entire family
    #17 you are correct very bad hair line
    # 1 you are a loser

  32. veggi

    All I’m saying is, what goes around comes around. I’m not some mindless drone who parrots whatever words Cheney’s bitch mispronounces at a press conference. This guy participated in the continuing rape and murder of innocent civilians in a sovereign country that was complying with UN regulations when it was illegally invaded. Karma’s a bitch, Johnny boy. Enjoy your nap. I hope the nurse doesn’t forget to change your diapers.

  33. veggi

    jeeezus, my troll is a fucking bastard.

  34. 1MILF Hunter

    Powerbomb his ass. Then drop an elbow smash. That’ll teach him

  35. Diana

    I hope this piece of garbage goes to jail and that daddy’s money doesn’t get him out of this. This is what happens when kids do nothing but sit around and have everything handed to them. Why was this douche even driving? He’d had like 3 speeding tickets that year. Why didn’t daddy take away the fancy car?

  36. nagger please

    Send Nick and his bad driving skills to Iraq.

  37. veggi

    i’m gay, i’m gay. hahaha teeheeheehee!!!!!!! look at me, la lala, look at me!!!!! iraq is bad, nick bollea good.

  38. Just because it’s an ACCIDENT (and they’re all accidents, BB) doesn’t absolve you of responsibility or guilt.

    Remember that the next time you’re in an ACCIDENT. Put down the bottle and shut off the cell phones when you’re riding around in one-ton death machines, thanks.

  39. Veggi I love your troll. What an asshole

  40. muffin knows douchbags

    .02% isn’t drunk, but does show recklessness when coupled with the underage factor and the drag racing. Though it would be interesting to know how soon after the crash Nick was tested for alcohol – enough time may have passed for the percentage to go down.

    Also, what’s up with this Bollea/Hogan last name thing? Why do they have different last names?

  41. Gil Massing

    .02% is still too much alcohol to have in a douche.

  42. Cheeseburger

    “TMZ reports that this 17-year-old kid has been busted four times for unlawful speeding, and gotten four points on his license! Nick has been caught doing 115 mph in 70 mile zone, 57 in a 30, and 106 in a 70…”

    How many more violations is it gonna take until his celebrity privileges cease?

  43. colby

    Veggi, You are retarded. You must be a mid 20′s, green party supportin’, patchwork skirt knittin’, birkenstock footwear wearin’, herbal tea drinkin’, organic food eatin’, pot smoking hippie. Am I correct? Of course I am……

    I am in the military. It is our choice to join, but it is not our choice as to whether or not we get deployed. We know it’s a good possibility, but if you want to live in this country, I believe you should serve it. He participated in rape? Were you there when he raped? People like you should be in permanent comas because America doesnt want your vote.

    Go back to your minimum wage job.

  44. Shallo Val

    Hogan Jr. should have died. Period.

  45. veggi

    colby, if I had a minimum wage job, I too would think about joining the military. That’s usually how it works. Luckily I have a brain and a great job, so I don’t have to think about becoming a shaved-head costume-wearing zombie with a gun and no mind or identity of my own. Go follow your orders, tard. If you get your legs blown off in Iraq, just think about how much you’ll save by not having to buy new shoes!

  46. LayDeeBug

    This ASSFACE probably has all kinds of race tracks at his disposal and he has to race nobodies in the street, so that a nobody like himself can be recognized by other nobodies.

    Now I know why previous generations roll thier eyes at following generations, because kids just get more and more stupid as time goes by. (rolls eyes)

  47. D

    #11 – I laughed until i died

  48. StormSigma

    You know, I used to watch Hogan Knows Best, and so I got to see what a real dickbag Nick became over the course of the show, and so I have to admit to an extreme case of schadenfreude here because it’s awesome to see some young punk who thinks he’s the King Shit getting slapped down by the law. Let’s see you walk up in that court room with your ridiculous tilted, too-big flat-brimmed ballcap, wife-beater, saggy cargo shorts while wearing a moronic “My dad’s richer than you” smirk now, asshole.

  49. suzy chapstick hates ann coulter

    colby, i don’t think everyone should have to serve… that is silly. some people are not even physically able to. i don’t think there is anything wrong with being liberal,but veggi, there are a lot of people in the military that have an education. some people go into the military to help pay for school. a lot of people do chose to be in the military for other reasons than that they have nothing else but a minimum wage job to go to.
