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.

i do not think anything should happen to him... sad what happened to his friend and im sure he did not plan that, but no offense but people are constintly going well over the speed limit endangering others (not saying its right) and i have never seen a cop put them to jail. Also, if Nick is going to get sentenced the other guy racing him should to.
Yes reckless driving is a felony, which going over 20mph + the speed limit... on highways speed limit is 55 i do 80 if that and people are still cruising past me.

you all act like you have never sped before.. give me a break and stop critizing Nick.

It's about time. But the sad part of it all is that he will probably get bail, have his court appearances, then have his court dates delayed, and delayed and delayed and delayed. So the way I see it as long as he is walking around, maybe the courts make him while he is waiting, have him go the hospitals and clean up after those that can't. Those individuals injured just as Mr. Graziano is, as should everyone that drinks, drive and injures/kills someone, until it gets drilled deep into their damn heads.! And to #63 - SHUT THE HELL UP! It's not jealousy idiot, it's called being sick and tired of ignorant people doing ignorant things and then just pretend that life goes on for them and not realizing the damage inflicted on the victims!! Geez drinking at 17, almost killing his "friend" then finally "deciding to turn himself in" and his parents lovingly caring for him while he still roams the damn streets! SHUT THE HELL UP!!!

Well lets see, Johns over 21 correct? So who could of possibly bought nick the alcohol? John, and to top it off he let his friend drive home while intoxicated, and didn't bother to wear a seat belt? To me this seems like a set up, a set up to get Money from the Bollea family. I mean seriously, why would you buy alcohol for a minor and let him drive home? Unless, your a moron and to me John seems to be a just that a Moron!

Drinking & driving under age- what the hell were you thinking? Moron. Not only did you cause your "good friend john" to be seriously hurt you could have killed someone. then you show yourself at at race- tell me does it bother you or cause you any remorse when you see John? You deserve to be tried as an adult. You deserve the book thrown at you - you deserve your license taken away so you cannot hurt anyone else.

The Hogan's are TRASH! They never cared when he was out street racing.

They didn't even care if their 19 yr old was dating a 30 yr old man.

Shame on those parents.

I am glad that justice is being done and that Nick Hogan, whatever in the hell his name is has been arrested and is charged with a DUI..and for his attorney's and publicist to always infer that "John did not have his seat belt on" is discusting..called
passing the buck." He trusted his good friend, and probably would have put on his seat belt had he know that his idiot friend was drunk, and would speed through a residential at almost two times the limit..

It would be one thing if it was Nick's first speeding, drinking and driving offense, I might have some empthy, but this kid is a drunk, has no respect for others lives, and speed is his middle name..aka SPOILED BRAT!! and it is toooooooo bad that the cops were not so start struck that they permitted this kid to continuously speed without giving him tickets and for the most part and let him off the hook because he was the Hulk's or whomever'[s son he is..I hope that he is taken off the streets for a long time..It is too bad his mom and dad didn't recognize or even care that he was a danger to others and take this fast car away from him..and they are just as guilty as Nick is for not giving a rip, well knowing about his drinking and exessive speed and doing nothing about it..
If this kid gets off the hook because of the celebrity status, this will be the injustice of all injustices..

What a bunch of haters!!! *shudders*
How unfortunate for this country really. Don't you realize how emotionally unhealthy it is to cheer for more tragedy to be heaped onto an already devastating event? Come on people! Focus some of that energy in a positive direction. Justice will be served. Leave it at that. There will be no winners in this case regardless of the final outcome. Watching more lives being ruined isn't going to make me feel better or change the past. God bless the poor families involved on all sides. My family will pray for a miracle.
