John Goodman Is Still in Jail (But Not for Long): Here's His Bond Agreement

A hearing in Palm Beach Circuit Court this morning hammered out the final details of John Goodman's release on bond while he appeals his conviction (and 16-year sentence) in the 2010 death of 23-year-old Scott Wilson. It looks like what was agreed to late Friday, but the document wasn't finalized and released until this morning.

Goodman still has to come up with $3 million, and his brother and sister the other $4 million, to get him out. The agreement also says he'll be fitted with a GPS tracker for serving house arrest, but he'll be able to go to his office at the International Polo Club. He's not, however, allowed to "participate in any business related social events, including attending polo matches."

He'll also be hit with random drug and alcohol testing, and he'll be paying to keep an off-duty police officer "within 100 feet of the Defendant at all times, 24 hours per day, every day, unlless and until Ordered to cease by this court."
