This is a clear case of neglect, stupid punk spoiled sh*t
headed actions on the part of Nick Hogan who should trade places with
the victim. He should do serious time for messing this young hero’s
life up and putting others in danger. Also his driving privileges
should be revoked for the next 20yrs.
CLEARWATER - The young Marine severely injured in a car accident involving wrestler Hulk Hogan’s son will need lifelong care and at best will only be able to open and close his eyes periodically, according to court documents.
John Graziano’s mother is petitioning a Pinellas County judge to allow her to assume guardianship of her 22-year-old son, who is in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center. A hearing is set for Wednesday.
The Dunedin High School graduate was the passenger in a yellow Toyota Supra driven by his friend Nick Bollea, 17, the son of the famous wrestler. Bollea crashed the Supra on Court Street in Clearwater on Aug. 26. According to court documents, Graziano was not wearing a seat belt. No charges have been filed; the accident is still under news investigation by Clearwater police.
His mother, Debra Graziano, was granted emergency temporary guardianship on Sept. 27, allowing her to apply for military benefits on her son’s behalf.
Graziano’s father, who is estranged from his wife, is contesting her application. Edward Graziano is seeking an independent guardian for his son, according to his attorney, Steven Hearn.
A Sept. 19 report filed by registered nurse Joanne Jones, who was hired by the court to examine John Graziano to determine if he is incapacitated, said he was on total life support. The report said that Graziano was comatose and that he may have had a seizure.
Jones’ report said Graziano responds to a pinch and has a gag reflex but does not otherwise respond to touch or sound. His pupils are fixed, meaning they don’t respond to light.
