Linda Hogan, the ex-wife of wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan, has been arrested for suspicion of DUI. Hogan was pulled over on Highway 101 in Calabasas, and she was pulled over because she was caught speeding through the area. Linda actually uses the legal name Linda Bollea, and the arrest happened at approximately 1:30 a.m. Linda stayed in jail until around 9 a.m. the same morning, when she posted bail in the amount of $5,000. According to a statement that the Sherriff’s office has released “A deputy saw a black Mercedes-Benz driving erratically on the westbound 101 Freeway. The deputy made a traffic stop of the vehicle on the Ventura Freeway at Kanan Road, Calabasas, to conduct a drunk driving investigation.” According to sources Linda had been at a local jewelry event and was on her way home when she was stopped by police. The police records show that Linda Bollea had a BAC test result that was slightly more than the 0.08 cutoff that the law allows.
According to Raymond Rafool, who is the attorney who represents Linda Bollea and who made a statement to the New York Daily News, “She’s a mom, so she’s embarrassed about it.” Rafool did not speculate or comment on whether Linda will go for substance abuse treatment or not, but this step may help her when her court date arrives. While Linda Bollea may have only been slightly above the legal limit the fact is that she used poor judgment while in an alcohol induced state, and drove a vehicle capable of causing serious injury or death in this condition.
