“Refusal to Transport” Document at Center of John Travolta Extortion Plot

January 28, 2009

(ChattahBox) — The item at the center of the John Travolta extortion case: is a “refusal to transport” document, according to reports.

While Paramedic Tarino Lightbourne and former Bahamian Senator Pleasant Bridgewater were arrested in the scheme to extort millions from Travolta after the tragic death of his son in the Bahamas, it wasn’t clear what was the threatening material being used against the actor.

Some reports said a photograph was at the center of the case, but TMZ reports that the extortion charges stem from a conversation Travolta had with the paramedic concerning where Jett should be treated. Travolta originally wanted to fly Jett back to the U.S.for treatment, believing it would take just as long to transport his son to a Bahamian hospital as it would to fly him to Florida. But while Travolta allegedly preferred to have Jett treated in the U.S. he realized there was no time and agreed to have him treated in the Bahamas. It seems like a real half-baked plot to try to extort someone over something like that, thinking Travolta would find such material damaging but there are a lot of desperate people out in the world.
