Nick Hogan was arrested today on charges stemming from the August street race that left one of his best friends critically injured.
Also: HE WAS DRINKING!!!
In addition to the reckless driving charge, authorities cited Bollea for using a motor vehicle in commission of a felony, being a driver under 21 operating a vehicle with a breath-alcohol level of .02 percent or higher and having illegal window tinting.
The Hogans issued the following statement:
â€œNick and the entire â€˜Hoganâ€™ Bollea family are saddened that criminal charges have been filed in regards to the tragic single car accident on August 26, 2007. Nick will meet and answer these charges in the appropriate arena â€“ a court of law. The familyâ€™s primary focus and concern still remains for the continued recovery of Nickâ€™s longtime friend John Graziano. The Bolleas will also continue to stand by the Graziano family and help them in any way they can.
The tragedy to both families is compounded by the fact that unfortunately John was not wearing his seatbelt. Thankfully, Nick was wearing his. Because of what happened to John, the entire Bollea family will make it a priority to increase public awareness about the importance of always wearing your seatbelt.
There has been much speculation as to the speed and wet road conditions surrounding this accident. Although all the evidence has not been evaluated, preliminary reports from the experts indicate that this was not, in fact, a high-speed accident.
Because Nick is still a juvenile and has no prior criminal record, we are disappointed that he is being charged as an adult offender. However, we are confident that the evidence will demonstrate that this was an accident. We ask all who follow these events to keep an open mind as to the facts until they have been ultimately determined. Finally, we thank all who have prayed for Johnâ€™s recovery and ask for your continued support and prayers.â€
Yeah, motherfuckers. ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEATBELT WHILE DRINKING AND STREET RACING!!!!!!!!
What the fuck is this, Carrie?
I mean, is it a dress or an escape pod?
Ugly. Ugly. Ugly.
You’re lucky you’re so goddamn gorgeous, girl. If Michelle Branch had showed up in this, people could have died.
At the BMI Country Awards.
Billboard has revised its policies — just this week — allowing an album sold through a single retailer to be on their charts.
This means The Eagles new double-disc — sold only at Walmart — takes the #1 spot away from Britney! The Eagles album sold 711,000 copies, compared to Britney’s 290,000 (projections had been at 350,000). She’ll have the #2 spot this week.
“We know that some retailers will be uncomfortable with this policy, but it was inevitable that Billboard’s charts would ultimately widen the parameters to reflect changes that are unfolding in music distribution,” says Geoff Mayfield, Billboard’s director of charts. “We would have preferred to make this decision earlier, but only became aware within the last 24 hours that Wal-Mart would be willing to share the data for this title with Nielsen SoundScan.”
Nothing is going Britney’s way lately. The world is so cruel. None of this is her fault.
Hey, guys, remember that one time that Katie Holmes looked like she was the same height as Tom Cruise?
That was weird.
Thankfully, it’s all over now.
And how fucking amazing does Katie look these days???
I need to convert to Scientology. Or train for a marathon.
Eh. Scientology sounds easier. Bring on the Xenu.
Remember how I was complaining about how the WGA picketers weren’t being particularly creative?
Oh, I spoke too soon.
The best and brightest of our creative minds came up with “We write the story-a, Eva Longoria” as a chant.
Um, guys? Maybe just stick with “We’re on strike.” Because you’re not exactly proving your worth with that other chant.
Desperate Housewives is one of many shows that will suspend production as a result of this strike, which is expected to last for months. Others include The New Adventures of Old Christine, Rules of Engagement, Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory, all on CBS.
“We are done, and we’ll be on the lines supporting you,” said Longoria, who joined the picketers and brought them pizza. “I have a whole crew that will have a terrible holiday season because there’s no resolution. I care about people losing their homes, I care about my hair and makeup artists who can’t make ends meet.”
Legal stories are so boring.
Basically, Britney has to pay for K-Fed’s lawyers because the Gods have decided that her trashy ass is rich and his comparably less trashy ass can’t get a job. The poor baby is only getting $35,000/month in spousal and child support from Brit. And who the fuck can live on that and pay legal bills?
Soooo boring. I’d be dead asleep if I hadn’t already had like 3 Red Bulls today. I have a problem with Red Bulls.
So I’m off to Las Vegas tomorrow for the Blog World Expo — the first blogging convention of its kind. Spare me the teasing — you won’t think up anything to say that my friends haven’t already. They think this is just the funniest thing ever. But you know what?
I am a blogger.
I am a dork.
And I am soooo excited!!!
(Plus, the guy I’m going with promises me we can go to Spearmint Rhino, and I’m one of those weird chicks who loves strip clubs, so I’m psyched on that.)
Yes, posting will continue as usual while I’m there. I’ll just sit in the convention center and blog between sessions, like everyone else there. Because we’re all huge dorks!!! I will be among my own kind at last.
So the reason I’m posting this is because I want to know if any of you will be there! Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’ll be there and you wanna meet up for a drink. I love making new friends!!!
