Jail to Nick Hogan: You're a Big Boy Now

7/27/2008 6:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is one time when happy and birthday don't go together.

Nick Bollea celebrated his 18th birthday today by being transferred into Pinellas County Jail's Central Division -- where he will reside in the direct supervision housing section which hold around 70 adults and one correctional officer. Hulk told us Nick was a "janitor."

We're told Hulk Hogan, Linda Hogan, Bubba the Love Sponge and bunch of Nick's friends sang "happy birthday" to him over a video monitor. After that, they were allowed to visit him two at a time. His sister Brooke was not there.

gazoo and disgusted you do not know the facts. The hogan's have given John's family a condo, furnished it, and gives them $5000 a month for their daily expenses. The Graziano family is glad to take their help and then stabs them in the back by saying untruthful things, they are such losers. John is where he is because of John's actions and choices. The Grazianos are just money grubbing sponges, NUFF SAID.

Does that cake say "Greatful"?!?!?! It's GRATEFUL, you idiots!! Who cares about this family anyway. Brooke looks like a complete bimbo on her reality show. She's not even pretty. Make-up can make her look OK at best. No talent, no looks, no brains. Why do people like this have their own tv show? America is going to hell in a handbasket to support crap like this.

I hope when he gets out of jail, his driver's license will be suspended for about 5 years. Maybe by then, he will have learned his lesson..

jj, I'm assuming your full name is JJ Bollea Hogan, because only someone who is a direct kin to this deranged family would post such crap. If the Hogan's have done as you stated, then I say that it's a start. Not much, but a start. I don't think they 'gave' them a condo, they may be footing the bill for the rent/lease, as I understand it.

And how are the Grazianos stabbing the Hogans in the back? You think just because the Hogans MAY be throwing chump change their way, they should let the following actions by the Hogan family, go un-noiticed?

1. The Hogans have lied about the way the 'accident' happened by stating Nick was not drunk, NIck was not speeding and Nick was not racing. All those lies have been shown for what they are by the accident investigation evidence and numerous eye witnesses

2. Terry Bollea supplied the alcohol to Nick. Nick and Terry know this, but they continue to sweep this fact under the rug, and don't bother correcting anyone who assumes John supplied the alcohol. A store clerk remembers Terry and Nick coming in, earlier in the day, to make the beer purchase.

3. The jail house tapes of phone conversations portray Nick and family bagging on the Grazianos, saying that they are not as emotionally devastated as the Hogans are, that they are putting on a pity party, that they don't deserve any compensation, that John Graziano, the victim, is solely responsible for his injuries and that it was his karma that created the situation he's in today.

From day 1 the Hogan/Bollea family has shirked their responsibility to John and his family. They have understated the true nature of John's injuries and then said they were a bunch of money-grubbing whiners because their loved one will never walk/talk or think again. Oh, yeah, the Hogans are just a peachy bunch. If it's true one of John's relatives threatened the Hogans, guess what, I wouldn't blame them one bit. They have endured far more than any human being should, and to be so easily dismissed by the people who put their son in this state, is criminal. If I was on that jury regarding the Graziano family member who may have made threats, I'd find them innocent of any crime. Their emotions have been put through enough and if they snapped and made a threat, I'd chalk it up to extreme emotional distress.

So JJ Bollea Hogan, go back under your rock, and come out when you grow a brain and a conscience. $55,000 and the rental of a condo is not nearly enough compensation for the Grazianos to grovel at the Hogan's feet. You act like because the Hogan's made some small effort that the Grazianos should be grateful? Pfffth. Ain't gonna happen. The Grazianos owe the Hogan's NOTHING.

Spelling and driving were never the strong suits for the Bollea family. Nick's real name is Theodore, but it was too hard to spell so they opted to spell it N-I-C-K

Do you really believe that that makes it all better????!!! Go watch the video on YouTube, pretend that is your brother, your son, your father - and then tell me that any amount of ANYTHING - CASH, MATERIAL THINGS, APOLOGIES (fake by the way) would give you what you REALLY WANT - your loved one back. The Hogan/Bollea family has their son.

You're an idiot. Go sit next to Kelli.

*************************************************

Please stop with these ridiculous PR-fueled lies. Terry WAS giving Linda money so she could pay the RENT on a condo for John's mom (no condo was ever PURCHASED). It was LINDA, not Terry, who was concerned enough to arrange for a place for John's mother to stay. The rental paymenst for the condo stopped several months ago (as Terry himself stated on Larry King) when Terry cut off all payments ot Linda. The Bolleas have NEVER paid $5000 per month to John's family and, once the civil action was filed, NO REPUTABLE ATTORNEY would EVER allow them to do so, since such payments could be construed as an admission of guilt. So peddle your PR bull to someone who knows neither the facts nor the law.

I find it really hard to believe that SOME people have stooped as low as the PAID posters for the Huligan Hogan family.I would rather pick up empty can's for money than stoop that LOW.Praying for the Graziano family.

um who cares    

You people need to give it up! No body in htis world is perfect & if you are then take your AZZ to the ocean & walk on water! A mistake was made & Nick was judge in a court of law! He was handed his sentence & he is serving it. John is in serious ocndition for the rest of his life.
I have a quetions for all of you stone throwers! What if this was your child & he crashed the car with his friends would you be so hard on them the way you are bashing Nick? You can't tell me that when you all were teens you were perfect in every way I bet some one you even drove drunk but never got caught! We all make mistakes some harsher then other but that doesn't mean we are bad people.
You have to remember somethign Marines take care of their own! God is taking care of John now!

We all ahve a plan in life that is set forth for us beofre we are born if you believe that . You must accept it whether you like it or nto.
John did not ask for this to happen to him it was just the road that has been carved out for him.

Give this family a break I bet if they weren't so famous & it was the neigbor next door you wouldn't be so hard & ruthless!

Grow up have some respect for others
Just remember it coudl have been your child driving the car! Don't say No cause you cna't monitor your children 24 7 !

The continued callous disregard I keep seeing here for the REALITY that John Graziano and his family live through every day astounds me. Some of you are either heartless, pathetic excuses for human beings, or you have the mentality of a gorilla. God help you if something like this ever happens to someone you love - I bet you won't be defending the Hogan/Bollea family then!!!!!

And to the poster above who said it could have been you, or your child, and that if you are perfect go walk on water - those are valid arguments. But when you frame them with the bitter, hateful words you chose to direct at us, it completely undermines your argument. That, and the fact that you don't know how to spell.
