"Man cave" owner takes stand in Goodman retrial

By Brian Entin

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Polo player Kris Kampsen was on the stand most of the morning in the retrial of John Goodman. He owns the "man cave" where the defense claims Goodman went to drink after the crash.

Goodman was driving a Bentley that hit Scott Wilson's car in 2010. Wilson's vehicle went into a canal, and he drowned. A jury found Goodman guilty of DUI manslaughter in 2012, but Goodman was awarded a new trial because of juror misconduct.

Kampsen said to his knowledge, Goodman had never been to the man cave before.

In the man cave there is alcohol, and Kampsen said many polo players hang out there.

Kampsen said the day after the crash, he could not find anything out of the ordinary in his man cave.

He was asked: “You were on your property the day after the crash?”

And he answered, “Yes sir.”

“And that time, you did not find anything out of place?” he was asked.

His answer: “It is hard to tell.”

“Do you remember testifying you didn't find anything out of place?” he was asked.

“I have people coming and going, so it is hard to tell,” he said.

Kampsen said Goodman showed up to his property days after the crash with other men.

Goodman's defense attorneys said that they could be done presenting their case as early as Friday -- which means closing arguments would start Monday.
