He was the owner of two modified Dodge Vipers made specifically for drifting, while he raced in his final competition with a Nissan 350Z.
On 13 September 2006, Nick drove a 2001 Lamborghini Diablo VT which was owned by the chairman of the international entertainment company SoBe Entertainment – Cecile Barker. The car caught on fire – the spokesman of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Paul Perry stated that it was a kind of a car fire that happens on occasions, and that Nick wasn’t to blame for anything.
Only four days later, he was stopped by the police two times, and was ticketed the second time for driving around 185 km/h in a 110 km/h zone. He was ticketed again on 8 February 2007 for driving at 92 km/h in a 50 km/h zone, and then on 25 April 2007 for driving at 171 km/h in a 110 km/h zone.
On 26 August 2007, Nick – aged 17 at that time and under the influence of alcohol – drove his Toyota Supra very fast and crashed into a tree. It was reported that he and his crewmates from his drifting team were racing, the two other boys driving Nick’s father’s Dodge Viper. Nick had to spend around half a year behind bars in Pinellas County Jail from 9 May to 21 October 2008, as he was charged with a couple of violations including a felony.
