St. Petersburg, Florida -Several national publications are reporting that Hulk Hogan's Nick Bollea, is being released "early" from the Pinellas County Jail.
Sheriff's spokesman Jim Boardner says that it is incorrect to call this an "early release date."
He says Bollea's October 21 release date is right on target considering the gain and good time afforded every inmate in the Pinellas County Jail.
Bollea will be released October 21 if he continues to follow the jail rules and does not cause any problems.
17-year-old Bollea has been serving an eight-month sentence for reckless driving that led to an accident in August of 2007, which seriously injured his friend, John Graziano.
Graziano was left with severe head injuries from the crash.
Bollea is scheduled to be released on October 21st.
