LARGO, Fla. (AP) - Nicholas Bollea, son of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, has been granted early release from his five-year probation sentence that resulted from a 2007 accident that severely injured his friend John Graziano.
The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/IJiUG9) reports that a Pinellas County judge granted Bollea's early release on Friday.
Twenty-one-year-old Bollea did not attend the court hearing. He pleaded no contest in 2008 to reckless driving with serious bodily injury. Judgment was withheld, meaning he would not be a felon if he successfully completed all of the terms of his sentence.
The sentence included eight months in the Pinellas County Jail plus five years of probation, 500 hours of community service and court costs.
The judge ruled that Bollea's driver's license should be revoked for three years.
