Hulk Hogan's son Nick Bollea has been jailed for eight months for felony reckless driving, after the August 2007 car crash that left his friend critically injured.

Bollea, 17, pleaded no contest to the charge, as part of a plea deal that meant he couldn't serve more than one year in Pinellas County Jail.

As well as the jail time, Bollea was also handed five years probation; his driver's license has been suspended for three years; and he has been banned from drinking alcohol for five years.

The sentence was handed out in court in Pinellas, Florida, on Friday.

The punishment stems from a horrific crash in Clearwater, Florida, last year, when Bollea drove his Toyota Supra into a palm tree at a high speed. His passenger, John Graziano, suffered brain injuries, and is still receiving medical treatment.
