Nick Hogan arrested, turned himself in

Nick BOllea

Nick Bollea turned himself in this morning at the Pinellas County Jail for reckless driving involving serious bodily injury. In addition, Nick will also be charged with use of a vehicle in commission of a felony, being a minor with a 0.2 BAC and illegal window tint for the August 26 accident that left his friend in a coma. The Hogan family issued this statement,

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.

Nick’s attorney said,

“What you’re going to see is this was an accident…an accident that happened on a wet road.”

Then he muttered something about drunk driving, racing cars and some guy named “John” in a coma. Although, I’m glad they’re focused on increasing seatbelt awareness after this tragic accident instead of telling people not to drink and race. God forbid intoxicated minors drifting their cars on wet road kill themselves. Now they’ll live another day to endanger more innocent lives. That’s what John would want. I mean, if he had brain function, that’s what he would want.

    Oh come on he was NOT drunk .02 is not considered being drunk that means he had a drink… I figured MADD and all the other crazy alcohol groups would be all over this. SPEEDING Was a factor.. STOP SPEEDING NICK! Now I am not saying he should of been drinking at all he’s only 17 but let’s look at his life.
    I hope he has learned a lesson.

    From the very begining I thought it was fantastic how a spoiled little rich kid whose aspirations in life are right now to get his GED which makes him a dropout to boot can walk away with a few bruises and get worldwide sympathy while a 23 year old from a hard working middleclass family fresh back from his 2nd tour in Iraq winds up a vegetable, and we now know how Florida takes care or those with brain damage thanks to Terry Shivo. So what have we so far a hard working freedom fighter who was cruising around with some egocentric child who loves to show his daddys money and has had a lisence for just over a year when said child says look what I can do and takes away to functionality of someone who has done and seen things none ever should. Not only should nick be locked up for 2nd degree vehicular manslaughter, he should also have to endure if for only one minute the pain, agony, and mental anguish of his passangers mother but that would be expecting to much. As for his charges, I hope they stick; he can always get that GED in prison.

    Hey assfacedrivesafe – .0000001 is DUI for someone under 21. This is the law. The law also says you aren’t supposed to speed. His actual DUI could have been anything over that and its still illegal, irresponsible, and AGAINST THE LAW.

    Nick has never had to live with the consequences of his actions, and I hope that every day that he wakes up and sits up in bed, he realizes that because of his decisions, a good friend of his won’t even have that luxury.

    He made adult decisions, regardless of his age, and I hope he faces adult consequences. 60 – 180 days in the county lockup should help.
