Hulk Hogan‘s son, Nick Hogan, found himself in a jail cell early this weekend — ’cause he got arrested for DUI … and the location is notable.
According to online records, Nick got busted Saturday morning just before 4 AM in Clearwater, FL — where cops booked him on suspicion of driving under the influence … noting he allegedly refused to submit to sobriety testing.
The exact circumstances that led up to the arrest are unclear for now, but they’re logging this as a misdemeanor — and they had Nick pose for this mug while he was being processed. As of this writing, he hasn’t been released from custody.
On its face, it’s a simple DUI arrest … which, while serious, wouldn’t normally be all that big a deal — especially if nobody got hurt. However, Nick had previously been involved in a scary car accident way back in the 2000s when he was just a teen … also in Clearwater, FL.
It was a well-documented saga at the time … Nick was driving with a Marine friend of his — John Graziano — who suffered a serious brain injury from the wreck … but survived.
Nick, who was 17 at the time, ultimately pleaded no contest to reckless driving involving serious bodily injury. In the lead-up to that plea, cops had alleged alcohol was involved. Nick went on to serve an 8-month sentence behind bars in the aftermath.
Of course, the Graziano family also sued the Hogans over the accident … and they settled out of court.
Nick doesn’t appear to have any reps at the moment — so we reached out to Hulk’s camp for comment … but no word back yet.
As for what Nick was up to Friday night, his Instagram page suggests he was attending a bikini contest at his dad’s restaurant … which is also in the Clearwater area.
