Bollea was sentenced to eight months in jail in 2008 after pleading no contest to charges of reckless driving involving serious bodily injury stemming from a car collision in 2007 when he was 17.

Clearwater Police said Bollea was racing his father’s 1998 Toyota Supra against a Dodge Viper on Aug. 26 when the car Bollea was driving struck a curb, spun across two lanes of traffic and slammed rear-end first into a palm tree. 

His passenger, John Graziano — a 22-year-old Marine who served in Iraq — was critically injured.

Shortly before Nick was sentenced, the Graziano family sued the Hogans for negligence – one count of negligence against Hogan’s son, Nick Bollea, three counts of negligence against Terry Bollea (Hogan), one against Linda Bollea (Bollea’s mother and Hogan’s wife) and a final count against Daniel Jacobs, the driver of the Dodge Viper that Bollea was racing.

The Graziano family claimed that Hogan and Linda Bollea should have known that their son was a reckless driver, and were also aware that their son was drinking on the day of the crash.

A settlement was reached weeks before going to trial in 2010.
