Report: Hogan Bought Son Alcohol Before Crash
LATEST: Wrestling superstar HULK HOGAN has been exposed as liable for his son NICK BOLLEA's summer car crash and consequent driving ban. The sports star-turned-actor - who is currently going through a divorce with wife Linda - is said to have purchased beer for Nick and his friends before the 17-year-old's summer (07) accident, which led to his arrest on a dangerous driving charge earlier this month (07Nov07). Included in the damaging police report released this week (28Nov07) is a receipt from Albertson's Liquor Store in Clearwater, Florida at 2:14 p.m. on the day of the accident for $78 (GBP39) worth of beer and ice. A clerk, June Hoopingarer, claims Hulk - real name Terry Bollea - was the one who purchased the booze. The report adds that Nick and his friends spent the day of the accident on a boat with Hulk, where everyone consumed alcohol. The group were later turned away at a local establishment, Shepard's Tiki Bar, because Nick was underage. The teenager has been charged with reckless driving involving serious bodily injury, and will be tried as an adult. His father's attorney denied comment when contacted, saying that he had not seen the official report yet.
