A judge has rejected Nick Bollea's request to be released from solitary confinement.

The 17-year-old son of Hulk Hogan is currently serving an eight-month jail sentence stemming from an August 2007 car accident that gravely injured his friend. On Monday, his people filed a motion to change his program to home confinement because solitary confinement for up to 17 hours a day was causing him "unbearable anxiety."
