A judge in Florida says the 17 year old son of wrestler Hulk Hogan should serve eight months in jail for reckless driving.
Nick Bollea was led off to begin his sentence immediately after the ruling yesterday afternoon.
He will also be on five years of probation and lose his driving privileges for three years.
Authorities say in August, Bollea was racing a friend in his father's sports car when he clipped a curb, spun out of control and slammed into a palm tree.
The impact left his friend, John Graziano, critically injured and in need of lifetime medical care.
Bollea pleaded no contest to the reckless driving charge.
