TRAVOLTA SUSPECT FREED ON BAIL
Posted 12:58pm 02/17/09
An ambulance driver accused of attempting to extort millions of dollars from JOHN TRAVOLTA in the wake of his son's death has been released from jail in the Bahamas. Tarino Lightbourne was arrested on 23 January (09) for his alleged involvement in a reported $25 million plot to bribe Travolta and his grieving wife Kelly Preston in the hours after their teenage son Jett died. Lightbourne allegedly conspired with former Bahamas senator Pleasant Bridgewater to release a document related to the teenager's January (09) death, and was charged with attempted extortion and conspiracy to extort money. Last week (11Feb09), a Bahamian judge denied Lightbourne's requests to lower his $50,000 bond - but he managed to come up with the cash and was freed from Fox Hill Prison on Monday (16Feb09), according to TMZ.com. Prosecutors plan to bring the case to trial as soon as the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas in Nassau reconvenes on 16 April (09). (MT/WNWCZM/IG) *WENN
