Cops: Hogan Wreck Victim's Dad

Got Violent in Hospital

9/2/2007 7:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Edward GrazianoThe father of the critically injured passenger in Nick Hogan's horrific car wreck, was arrested on Friday -- one day after he allegedly turned violent in the hospital's ICU ward.

St. Petersberg police were called to Bayfront Medical Center Thursday afternoon after Edward Graziano's wife told them that he got physical during an argument with other members of the family.

After Edward left the hospital, Debra Graziano, Edward's wife, renewed a domestic violence injunction against him, stemming from a June 21 arrest in which Edward was charged with domestic battery, battery on a law enforcement officer, and tampering with a witness.

Cops say Edward returned to the hospital on Friday afternoon, violating the new injunction, and was arrested a few hours later at the Vinoy Hotel in downtown St. Petersburg. He was taken to the Pinellas County Jail where he still remains behind bars..
