that's getting all sorts of national attention... and no wonder... some of the testimony is downright scandalous. in fact, yesterday in the pinellas courtroom, the hulk hogan trial got up close and very personal... about the sex tape at the center of this case. fox-13's haley hinds picks up the story from there... and we should warn you, it's not child-friendly. 3 monday in a pinellas county courtroom, hulk hogan shared a story of vulnerabilty.gave up.. gave in.. let my guard down and it just happened on the verge of divorce, his defenses were weak. and he leaned on his best friend -- now *former* best friend -- bubba the love loved bubba unconditionallyyes with bubba's blessing... hogan finally agreed to have sex with heather clem -- who was bubba's wife at the was so surreal. i was there and he was handing me a condom. my gut just, just didn't feel right - it just came out, you're not filimg this is what i said if i can remember correctly. he says bubba reassured him... what happened there would stay there.i knew bubba had cameras. but i was never told or 3 never was pointed out that there was a security camera pointing at the bed or there was a camera in the bedroom, i never heard of it hogan says they had sex 3 or 4 more times. but years later, a call from a gossip site would shatter that trust. there

(jen) hogan is suing the website "gawker" for 100- million dollars. his attorneys say: the video got seven-million views. gawker's defense is: that hogan spoke freely about his sex live in florida, so therefore, it's fair game. they're also calling it a first amendment issue. the trial continues today. 3 3 (walter) it's the story we got so many calls about last summer... the dog saved from being put down, after biting a child. well now, padi is in trouble again... accused of biting a *puppy. 3 (walter padi the dog was nearly euthanized after biting off part of a four-year-old boy's ear in june. it happened at his owner's pet clinic in bradenton. well monday morning, a four-month old puppy... that was in training to be a service dog... was bitten on the nose by padi. padi's owner claims the puppy was the aggressor... growling at his dog, and getting up in padi's face... but the puppy's caregiver says: that's not true... the attack was unprovoked. she's afraid the bite may scar him, and prevent him from becoming a service dog. 3 "having fear issues can take a dog out of the program. he's being trained to be a wheelchair support dog, so he has to be able to go into a neighborhood with other dogs,
