Clearwater PD today released details of their investigation into the August 26 crash. In addition to being arrested for reckless driving involving serious bodily injury, cops also cited Hogan for use of a motor vehicle in the commission of a felony, a person under the age of 21 operating a vehicle with a breath-alcohol level of .02 or higher and having an Illegal window tint.

Police also concluded that although Hogan and a second car were racing right before the crash, the driver of the second car was not a direct cause of the accident. That driver has also been ticketed for reckless driving.

Hogan was going 60 mph in a 40 mph zone when he lost control and hit a tree.

If Hulk wasn't so wrapped up in his daughter's pathetic "singing" career and scaring off guys to date her, maybe he could have taken more time to be involved in his son's life.

This little punk better get alot of time in prison. Right now Im sure Mama Hogan is crying her eyes out with the mascara running down her face sceaming "My baby, my baby! They are not sending my baby to jail!" And Im sure Hulk is sayin "Dont worry Linda, I'll go back to wrestling to earn the money to keep Nicky out of jail."

Looks like little Nicky forgot to put his seatbelt on once and got caught for it.. it's a shame his "rep" is trying to throw the blame on John.. Nicky was in control of his car and the passenger.. plain and simple.. face the consequences Nicky.. it's time to MAN-UP!!

What's wrong with her face in this picture?    

My father was killed in an accident involving a young person and am happy to hear that this young person is going to be charged. It's so hard to watch rich and spoiled youngsters get away with everything in California.

I hope he gets the appropriate sentence that any "ordinary" person without the financial means he has (through his father).

God bless the families as they go through this painful ordeal. I feel so sorry for John.

WHY don't people wear their seatbelts? (No.....I am not blaming John for the accident. He did "contribute to the extent of his injuries possibly by not having a seat belt on.)

Inflated ego-roid rage Hunk daddy should have taken his falsely won winner's wrestler belt and whalloped that young punk with it a few times for his growing insolence and rudeness., taken him under his wing and showed him right from wrong and some common sense. Then all that hard work and suffering to make it big and have the money and might to safely raise a family would have served a good purpose!

I have always liked Hulk Hogan ,but all Linda and Hulk did was make Brooks life miserable while Nick ran around doing dumb immature things and had all the freedom that he wanted. Maybe they should of focused more on that brat then on Brook. I feel so bad for all that is involved. Im sure Nick did not mean to do this but he needs to be a man and take responsibility for it.

He will be out on bail in no time and back in the courts with daddy's best bought lawyer at a later date. The question is, will Nick plead guilty or will he try to fight it?
