WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX)  John Goodman was released from the Palm Beach County Jail this morning under in-house arrest, according to Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Teri Barbera.

Goodman left the jail at 7:45 a.m. in the back seat of a silver car.

Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath signed the order allowing the 48-year-old Texas-born tycoon to return to his home at the International Polo Club Palm Beach instead of beginning to serve a 16-year prison sentence.

Under terms of the bond, Goodman would return to his home and will not be allowed to leave the club's grounds. He also has to line up off-duty police to watch him around the clock and to stay within 100 feet of him at all times. He also will not be allowed to socialize with club patrons.

He will be required to have two deputies on duty 24-hours-a-day. Source close to the defense estimate the security will cost Goodman roughly $730,000 a year.

According to The Palm Beach Post, the $7 million bond for Goodman came from his brother and sister. The money is being held in a non-interest bearing account the Palm Beach County Clerk of Court's office uses for cash bonds.
 
Goodman has been in the Palm Beach County Jail since March 23, when he was convicted in the 2010 crash that killed 23-year-old Scott Wilson.

Wilson drowned after Goodman's Bentley slammed into and then pushed Wilson's Hyundai into a canal. Goodman didn't call 911 for nearly an hour.
