WELLINGTON, Fla. - John Goodman was transported to Wellington Regional Hospital after a recent hip replacement, according to his attorney, Guy Fronstin.
"The newly replaced hip came out of the socket. Therefore, he was transported to the hospital to have the hip put back in place," said Fronstin.
Fronstin said the procedure was successful and two Palm Beach Sheriff' deputies were with Goodman while he was at the hospital, said Fronstin.
Teri Barbera, spokeswoman for Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office also confirmed Goodman had some type of medical episode and had to be transported to Wellington Regional Hospital.
Goodman was convicted in 2012 of DUI manslaughter in the 2010 death of college graduate Scott Wilson.
He was sentenced to 16 years in prison, and has been on house arrest pending an appeal of his DUI manslaughter conviction.
He has been wearing an ankle monitoring device as part of the house arrest.
Goodman was released from Wellington Regional Hospital later Monday evening.
