When Hulk Hogan first emerged in the world of professional wrestling, he was one of the good guys who always did the right thing.
As the years went on, living up to the same values that helped him soar to fame has proven difficult for Hulk Hogan and those representing his family name.
Hulk Hogan has long since admitted to struggling with alcohol during his life. Based on the news, it would seem he is not the only one in his family who is encountering similar issues.
His son, Nick Hogan, has been arrested in Florida for driving under the influence but refusing to undergo any sobriety test the police attempted to administer.
As of Nov. 18, Nick Hogan was still in custody.
Sadly, this is not Nick Hogan’s first incident involving alcohol.
Back in 2007, while he was just a teen, he was in a serious car accident that resulted in extremely profound and life-long brain injuries to someone else in the vehicle.
That stunt landed Nick Hogan eight months in jail after he agreed to a no-contest plea to reckless driving involving serious bodily injury.
Hulk Hogan, like his son, had also struggled with alcohol abuse for years before taking a hard look in the mirror and truly grasping how much it had negatively impacted his life.
“Everything bad that’s ever happened to me had to do with alcohol,” Hulk Hogan said, according to the Los Angeles Times.
While Hogan has not broken his silence on the DUI arrest of his son, Nick Hogan, one can imagine how Hulk is feeling after that phone call.
We are sure it is breaking Hogan’s heart to know that his own child is battling the same demons he faced for a large majority of his life.
If there is anyone who can get through to Nick Hogan, there is no better man for the job than his own father, Hulk Hogan. That is, assuming Hulk Hogan can keep his own life cleaned up.
