WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - At the request of his lawyers, the ankle monitoring device that John Goodman said fell off while he was in the shower will be examined and compared to another device at a lab in Stuart next week.
According to court order, the device Goodman wore on the night of his arrest Oct. 10 will be taken to the lab and evaluated with a sheriff’s deputy and attorneys present, most likely on Dec. 3.

Goodman, 49, will remain in Palm Beach County Jail until at least Dec. 18, after Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath rescheduled a hearing on the convicted polo mogul's appellate bond.
Prosecutors are preparing to ask the judge to permanently revoke Goodman's $7 million bond, which followed his May sentencing to 16 years in prison for DUI-manslaughter. A jury found him guilty of driving drunk and causing a February 2010 crash that killed Scott Wilson, 23.
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputies said Goodman destroyed his ankle monitoring device with a handheld mirror, while on guarded house arrest at his Wellington mansion. He was booked in the county jail immediately after the incident.
Attorneys for Goodman, founder of International Polo Club Palm Beach, said the ankle monitor broke accidentally.
