Bollea's Car Crash Victim Shown In New Home Videos
LATEST: Emotional home videos of HULK HOGAN's imprisoned son NICK BOLLEA's car crash victim have been made public in effort to show the teen the seriousness of his friend's condition.
Bollea, 17, is currently serving an eight-month prison sentence at Florida's Pinellas County Jail, after pleading no contest to a felony of reckless driving following a horrific car crash in Clearwater, Florida - which has left his friend John Graziano brain damaged.
On the newly released tapes, aired by CNN's Nancy Grace on Monday (16Jun08), 23-year-old Graziano is shown from his hospital bed, his injuries pixilated due to their severity.
Grace comments as the video rolls, revealing Graziano's day-to-day life: "I've been on a lot of crash wards and rehab centres to meet with victims and even now this is how wrenching it is to see what he is going through."
Graziano's parents spoke out in May (08), furious at Bollea's lack of remorse, after hearing him discuss plans to win an early release from jail in taped telephone conversations that were leaked online. The family also blasted the Bolleas for trying to cash in on their grief - by turning Nick's prison stint into a money-spinning reality TV show.
