Nick Bollea - the son of wrestling legend
- has been sentenced to eight months in jail after pleading no contest to charges of reckless driving.
Bollea crashed a car in August, 2007, leaving his best friend, John Graziano, in critical condition. The 17-year-old was also sentenced to five years probation, 500 hours of community service and three years with his license revoked. In court Friday, Bollea reportedly said, "I would like to apologize to the Grazianos and to my family for the accident.... I will never ever be able to say I'm sorry enough." Attorneys for John Graziano
filed a lawsuit
against Hulk and his estranged wife in March, claiming that the parents of an underage driver are liable for the accident.
Hulk Hogan (né Terry Bollea) was present during the proceedings, after which Nick was taken immediately into custody.
