Goodman to remain in jail until next hearing

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - John Goodman will remain in jail until the next hearing on November 26 at 3:30 p.m.

Update: FRI 10:30 PM: Goodman is back in court facing Judge Jeffrey Colbath. If prosecutors prove their case Friday morning, Goodman could spend the rest of his appeal process in jail.

Previously: He was sentenced to house arrest after a jury convicted him of DUI manslaughter. But since late Wednesday night, Wellington polo mogul John Goodman has been in jail.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff says he tried to break off his ankle monitor with a small mirror. Goodman was upstairs in a bathroom.

The two off-duty deputies stationed at his home learned of this within seconds.

A judge will decide how long Goodman will stay in jail.

At some point, perhaps as early as Thursday, prosecutors and defense attorneys will be called in for a hearing. There is a chance he may stay in jail during his appeals process, and that could be as long as a year -- maybe longer.

Goodman has been on house arrest since May after being sentenced to 16 years in prison in connection with that drunk driving crash that killed Scott Wilson.
