Clearwater, Florida -- A pre-trial hearing regarding charges against Nick Bollea, son of former wrestler Hulk Hogan, has been scheduled for April 18, at 1:30 p.m.
Neither Bollea nor his attorney, J. Kevin Hayslett, appeared in Pinellas County court on a status hearing Monday. But a judge did set the tentative pre-trial date anyway.
Bollea faces a felony charge of reckless driving with serious bodily injury.
Clearwater police say he was speeding when he lost control of his car and crashed last summer. John Graziano, a Marine, was a passenger in the car and suffered serious head wounds. Graziano's family says he will require medical care for the rest of his life.
Graziano's family has filed suit in reference to the accident citing three counts of negligence against Terry Bollea (Hulk Hogan and Nick's father), one against Linda Bollea (Nick's mother), one against Nick Bollea, and a final count against Daniel Jacobs, the driver of the Dodge Viper that Nick was supposedly racing.
The Graziano family is claiming in the lawsuit that Terry and Linda Bollea should have known that their son was a reckless driver, and that they were also aware that their son was drinking on the day of the crash.
