Looks like Nick Hogan, son of wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan, is in deep dookie! Clearwater Florida police arrested him today after he totalled his car back in August. It appears he made a whole series of collossal mistakes:
- street racing
- driving under the influence of alcohol
- under the age of 21
- illegal window tint (not a biggie in my book but still not wise)
I know that deep down many all of us love to see rich kids screw up and get caught but what really makes this whole thing tragic is the fact that the crash threw his passenger (best friend, Marine, John Graziano) into a coma with potential brain damage. Apparently Hogan was seat-belted but his passenger wasn't. At least it seems that the Hogans are handling the situation in a positive manner. I'll be praying for the families of those involved.
Now, for just a moment, let's apply this as a lesson to ourselves. As martial artists, we do dangerous things all the time. LET'S NOT DO STUPID THINGS. Come on, folks...
