Nick Hogan, Son of Wrestling Legend, Arrested for DUI

Nick Hogan, legal name Nicholas Bollea, was taken into custody on Saturday morning in Clearwater, Florida, for driving under the influence. This incident is not the first time Bollea has made headlines for breaking the law.

The Incident

According to an arrest affidavit, officers conducting a stop at around 1:15 a.m. Saturday morning spotted a Dodge Ram that was approaching them in a separate lane. An officer signaled to Bollea to move to another lane and slow down, but he did neither. The officer detected that the vehicle was speeding at 51 mph in a 40-mph zone on his in-car radar. When Bollea was pulled over for a violation of the Move Over Law, officers said he showed signs of impairment, such as swaying and unsteadiness, and had a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage” and bloodshot, glassy eyes. Bollea refused to take a breathalyzer test and failed field sobriety tests, leading to his arrest.

Previous Legal Troubles

This is not the first time Bollea has faced legal troubles. In 2007, at the age of 17, he was involved in a serious car crash that left his friend, John Graziano, paralyzed and in need of nursing care for the rest of his life. Bollea was charged with reckless driving and sentenced to eight months in county jail and five years of probation. Graziano’s family also sued Bollea and Hulk Hogan, Bollea’s father and wrestling legend, for their son’s injuries, resulting in a $1.5 million settlement.

Implications of DUI Arrest

Given Bollea’s prior legal troubles, his recent DUI arrest could have serious implications for him. Depending on the outcome of his case, it’s possible he could face steeper penalties, as there is often little sympathy for repeat offenders. Furthermore, the scrutiny he will face in the media and from the public may result in damage to Bollea’s reputation and career.


The law applies to everyone, regardless of their status or celebrity. Bollea’s recent arrest for DUI is a reminder of the importance of responsible driving and the consequences that come with breaking the law. We urge everyone to make safe driving a priority and avoid endangering the lives of themselves and others on the road.
