Nick Hogan leaves the Pinellas County Jail

Nick Bollea, reality TV star and son of professional wrestling icon Hulk Hogan, has been released from a Florida jail after serving five months for causing a serious car crash.

According to the Associated Press, Bollea, now 18 years old, was released from Pinellas County Jail Tuesday morning, where he served his sentence after pleading no contest to causing the accident in May. He was arrested last year after he lost control of his speeding Toyota Supra and crashed into a tree, permanently disabling his close friend and Iraq War veteran John Graziano.

Bollea could have spent up to five years in prison, but the victim's family requested a lesser sentence. The family, did however slam Hulk Hogan and his estranged wife Linda with a multimillion dollar lawsuit, claiming they were liable for their underage son's accident.

In addition to time served, Bollea was also sentenced to five years probation, 500 hours of community service and three years with his license revoked. Bollea's mother released a statement Tuesday asking for privacy.
