The son of professional wrestler and film star Hulk Hogan has turned himself in on charges stemming from a street-racing crash that critically injured a passenger in his car, Florida police said.
Nick Bollea, 17, was arrested on charges of reckless driving involving serious bodily injury, Clearwater police spokeswoman Elizabeth Daly-Watts said.
He arrived at the Pinellas County Jail handcuffed and accompanied by two police officers, The Tampa Tribune reported.
“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,” family spokesman Adam Handelsman said in a written statement.
