Police Officer: Defendant Burned Key Document in Travolta Case

A Bahamas police officer testified on Thursday that a defendant in the John Travolta extortion trial burned a key document with the actor’s signature on it.

The Associated Press says the officer told the court that former Bahamian Senator Pleasant Bridgewater, one of two defendants accused of trying to extort $25 million from Travolta, admitted to police on the day she was arrested that she burned a form linked to the medical treatment of the star’s late teenage son; Jett Travolta, 16, died on Jan. 2 following a seizure while on vacation with his family in the Bahamas.

The document would have freed the ambulance driver from liability if Jett had been flown back to the U.S. for medical care, as his father initially wanted, says the AP. In the end, Jett was taken to the hospital in the Bahamas.
