Arrest in Travolta Plot

Authorities in the Bahamas have charged one and detained two others in an alleged plot to extort money from John Travolta after the death of his son. The detained suspects are Tarino Lightbourne, the ambulance driver who has described to tabloids efforts to revive Travolta’s son, and Obie Wilchcombe, a Bahaman parliamentarian, former tourism minister, and self-described friend of Travolta. Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater, an attorney, was arrested and "charged with abetment to extort and conspiracy to extort." She was released on $40,000 bail. The exact nature of Travolta’s allegations are unknown.
