John Goodman back in jail, deputies say he tampered with ankle device

Bond revoked until another hearing held

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- John Goodman has had his in-house arrest temporarily revoked.

Attorneys will return for a hearing on Monday, November 26th at 3:30 p.m. At that time 1 5th Judicial Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath could decide whether to permanently revoke Goodman's house arrest.

The polo mogul's attorneys want more time to investigate allegations Goodman tampered with his ankle monitoring bracelet.

Goodman -- the founder of the International Polo Club Palm Beach who had been on house arrest since being convicted of DUI manslaughter earlier this year -- was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail on Wednesday after he tampered with an ankle monitoring device, deputies said.
 
Earlier this year, a Palm Beach County jury convicted Goodman in the Feb. 2010 death of 23-year-old Scott Wilson, who drowned after Goodman's Bentley crashed into Wilson's Hyundai along Lake Worth Road in Wellington.

Goodman will remain in the Palm Beach County Jail until his November hearing.
