Hulk Hogan's ex-wife Linda Hogan arrested on suspicion of DUI

Linda Hogan (Linda Bollea) was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.The ex-wife of pro wrestler Hulk Hogan was pulled over for speeding and then arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Calabasas on 101 Freeway.

Linda Hogan, 53, whose real name is Linda Bollea, was arrested Thursday morning by Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies about 1:30 a.m. and released shortly before 9 a.m. from the Lost Hills station on $5,000 bail.

"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," a sheriff's statement said.

She had been attending a jewelry event in the area and was heading home to Simi Valley when she was taken into custody; she allegedly had a blood-alcohol level just over the legal limit of 0.08.

"She’s a mom, so she’s embarrassed about it," her lawyer, Raymond Rafool, told the New York Daily News.

The Hogans had a highly publicized divorce in 2009.
