John Travolta's nightmare continues.
Suspecting juror misconduct, a Bahamian judge has declared a mistrial in the case of two people accused of trying to extort $25 million from Travolta's family after a local politician said in a speech played on radio and TV that former Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater had been acquitted.
Well, who the heck told him that?!
Closing arguments concluded this morning and the case went to the jury shortly afterward.
"The dilemma that we face is great," Senior Justice Anita Allen told the court. "I am erring on the side of caution. Justice must be transparent."
Bridgewater and ambulance driver Tarino Lightbourne pleaded not guilty for allegedly trying to get Travolta and Kelly Preston to pay for their silence regarding so-called damning details related to their son Jett's death.
Travolta's attorney, Michael Ossi, said his client will fully cooperate with future proceedings and testify again if need be.
