Nick Hogan Was Speeding AND Drinking!!!!


Clearwater, Fla. Police have arrested Nick Hogan, (aka Nick Bollea) for reckless driving involving serious bodily injury. He turned himself in to Clearwater Police this morning and is currently being booked in to the Pinellas County Jail.

Hogan was involved in a one-car crash in August that severely injured his friend, John Graziano. John has severe brain injuries and will likely require specialized care for the rest of his life.

Cops have concluded Nick Hogan was drinking the night he crashed his Supra, severely injuring his best friend.

Clearwater PD today released details of their investigation into the August 26 crash. 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 an Illegal window tint.

Police also concluded that although Hogan and a second car were racing right before the crash, the driver of the second car was not a direct cause of the accident. That driver has also been ticketed for reckless driving.

Hogan was going 60 mph in a 40 mph zone when he lost control and hit a tree.

Nick’s rep, Adam Handelsman, EVP of 5WPR, issued the following statement to TMZ:

“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.”

In April, Nick was ticketed for speeding 107 mph in Osceola County. And two weeks before the Clearwater crash, Nick was pulled over in Pinellas Park. Officers scolded him for driving 82 in a 45-mph zone.

With all of Nick’s past reckless driving and speeding violations on record, plus his own boasting of being stopped for speeding (over 100 MPH) three times in one night, he might consider a plea deal, because if this goes to trial he is screwed. His mugshot does not convey someone who has any remorse for turning his military veteran friend into a vegetable.

    This is just aweful! This kind of thing could happen to ANY young person (or old) and unfortunately you never think it would happen to you.

    Nick is a young, inexperienced driver who clearly made a mistake by drinking alcohol and speeding… something I think most of us have done as teenagers, maybe not combined, but none the less.

    I hope his family stays strong and pulls through this. It’s bad enough for him knowing what he has done to his friend who will never live the same again.

    what kind of shit comment is this “His mugshot does not convey someone who has any remorse for turning his military veteran friend into a vegetable.” Im sure he cares, and that is a pretty horrible thing to say about Nick, Just because he is a celebrity doesn’t mean Nick and his family aren’t people like everyone else….show some compassion!!!!

    I just want to say that I am really sorry for what has happened. This is an awful tragedy and very unfortunate. I do have to say though I have no ill feelings towards The Hogan family a car like this given to an a teenager is not a very responsible thing to do. The statistics alone for teenagers especially males in accidents and speeding tickets is very high in numbers. This just doesn’t happen with famous or wealthy people we have kids out there driving very expensive vehicles & don’t have a lot of money I think it is so important that a first car for anyone even a famous person or celebrity should still give their kid a junker car to have on their first go round that way if something happens it may not be this costly. My heart goes out to both families you have raised good children & words will never be the right ones in regards to a situation like this. Peace & Good Wishes;

    I feel sorry for both of the boys. Nick should not have been drinking or speeding and the passenger should not have gotten in the car with him knowing he was under the influence. The saying goes friends don’t let friends drive drunk. Everyone always wants to blame the driver but the passenger is at fault for getting into the car or not stoping him. Isn’t Nicks friend an adult. They all will be in my prayers.

    I’m sorry but i can’t feel sorry for him. Maybe it was stupidity maybe not but either way he should feel some kind of remorse. Doing that to a friend and not really giving a shit. In my book is WRONG!!

    Ya know, this kid thought he could get away with it because of who his daddy is. I hope this teaches him a lesson. Its sad that someone else is a vegtable now because of it though. I hope he gets what he deserves and no special treatment at all.

  11. jamie

  12. Jo

    That’s for rich boys driving like nobody’s business.

  13. Teresa

    all i have to say is that if he was a regular person, without a famous last name, and a rich family, he would be booked for far worse.. im sure hell get away with it just like all the nicole richeys, paris hiltons, and linsey lohans of the world.. if you ask me he needs to PAY!! his friend is the one whos paying when He was the one who wanted to show off like an ass. and thats the truth. nomatter if you like him or not. he needs to pay for what hes done. period.

    Reminds me of the equally sad and misfortunate saga of Leif Garrett … yet no one ever seems to learn from these tragedies.

  15. Chris

    Friggen moron, will he ever learn? I think mommy & daddy should take away his licence.
