Arrests Made in Travolta Extortion Case


Authorities in the Bahamas have made arrests in connection to the Travolta Extortion Case. After Jett Travolta’s untimely death in the Bahamas, reports surfaced that the family was the victim of some vultures attempting to capitalize on their tragedy. 

The Kicker: Of those arrested we have elected officials, EMTs and a former Tourism Minister who refers to himself as “a friend of the family.” Former Tourist Minister Obie Wilchcombe, ambulance driver Tarino Lightbourne who was in the ambulance during revival attempts and sitting Senator Pleasant Bridgewater were detained this past week.

Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater, an attorney from Grand Bahama, was arrested on Thursday. She was charged with abetment to extort and conspiracy to extort and released Friday on $40,000 bail, according to Assistant Superintendent of Police Loretta Mackey.


These people are the scum of the earth. No matter how you feel about John Travolta, or celebrities in general no one deserves this. To think that some of those involved are elected officials is disgusting. I hope they get what they deserve.

  • I so agree with that.
    Not a big fan on John Travolta, but exploiting his son’s death is disgusting.
    I’m glad they caught those assholes.

  • after they arrest those animals, they should go after the people that did whatever that is on his head

  • Yes, it was disgusting to exploit the misery of the family. That is why Beet and her parent company is going to turn over any advertising revenue generated while they covered the story.

    Yes, it is wrong what they did. Scum of the earth I agree. Lets not be hypocritical though and forget all the forms of media that made money off this kids death.

    Yes, sad to think of it.
