Washington, May 10 : Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan's son has been sentenced eight months of imprisonment following the charges of felony reckless driving.
Nick Bollea has been asked to serve eight months in jail after pleading no contest in court. The judge has also ordered five years probation, 500 hours of community service and a three-year drivers license revocation.
Nick would also be attending DUI education classes within one year.
The 17-year-old was arrested last November on reckless-driving charges stemming from an August 26 crash when pal John Graziano, who was in Bollea's passenger seat and not wearing a seat belt, was seriously injured.
An onlooker had told police that Bollea and a pal were drag racing upwards of 100 mph when Nick's yellow Toyota Supra slammed into a palm tree. Two hours after the crash, alcohol was detected in his bloodstream.
"I think there has to be some punishment," the judge said, disagreeing with the defense claiming the crash was an accident.
"But I believe there is a sincere desire, a sincere apology, to change things...[but] there are consequences for what you do in these circumstances," Usmagazine.com quoted the judge, as saying.
Nick would be appearing in court on November 11 to address restitution to the family.
