Hulk scares Linda Bollea's boyfriend

CLEARWATER — The latest twist in the Hulk Hogan saga: Linda Bollea's 20-year-old boyfriend, Charles F. Hill, has asked a court for protection from Terry Bollea, a.k.a. Hulk Hogan.

The petition, filed at 4:56 p.m. Nov. 20, was denied by a judge the same day.

In the petition, Hill says he was being "dangerously followed" by Hogan about 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 11 while driving west on Turner Street in Clearwater.

When they came to the light at Chestnut Street and Oak Avenue in downtown Clearwater, Hogan "pulled up next to him and stared at him," the petition says.

Hill said Hogan followed him again the next day. Hill said Hogan tailed him to his home on Lantana Avenue on Clearwater Beach. Hill wrote that Hogan was "tailgating & intimidating" him.

These events led Hill to fear that Hogan would "attempt to kill or injure him, since Petitioner (Hill) is dating respondent's estranged wife, Linda Bollea," the petition says. The Bolleas are going through a contentious divorce.

Just so there is no confusion, the petition gives Hogan's proportions: 6-foot 7 and 300 pounds, green eyes, white hair and a tattoo on each hand.

It asks that Hogan be barred from coming within 500 feet of Hill or the places Hill works: Captains School in St. Petersburg and Anchor Pool Services in Clearwater.
