Document at Center of Travolta Extortion Case Revealed

by at . Comments

The item at the center of the John Travolta extortion case has been revealed as a "refusal to transport" document, RadarOnline and TMZ are reporting.

The document detailed how "John Travolta told EMT workers he wanted to fly his son to Florida rather than drive by ambulance to the hospital... which was 45 minutes away" in the Bahamas, where Jett Travolta, 16, died of a seizure January 2.

In the end, John Travolta concluded that there was no time to have Jett treated in the U.S. and agreed to have him treated in the Bahamas.

Paramedic Tarino Lightbourne was charged Monday with conspiracy to commit extortion for allegedly demanding $25 million to keep this document private.

It is unclear why Lightbourne thought the document was worth $25 million, as it was mostly, if not completely irrelevant to the tragic death of Jett Travolta.

Former Bahamian Senator Pleasant Bridgewater, also accused of trying to extort money from the Travoltas, plans to "fight the untrue and unfair charges."

Police also had detained former tourism minister - and longtime Travolta family friend - Obie Wilchcombe, but he has not been charged in the case.
