Nick Bollea Wants Out Of Solitary

TAMPA, Fla. -- Solitary confinement isn’t sitting well with Hulk Hogan’s son.
Nick Bollea is serving eight months in jail after pleading no contest to causing a crash that seriously injured his friend.
The 17-year-old is being held in solitary confinement at the Pinellas County Jail’s medical ward because he’s too young to join the jail’s general population.
But Bollea’s lawyers say in a motion filed Friday the situation is causing him “unbearable anxiety.” They say he spends up to 17 hours a day alone in his cell and does not have access to amenities like educational programs.
They asked a judge to consider alternatives like releasing him with ankle monitoring until his 18th birthday or moving him to the jail’s minimum-security section.
