PROBABLE CAUSE: The facts, establishing the grounds for this application and the probable cause for believing that such facts exist, are as follows: On Friday, February 12,2010, at approximately 1:05 a.m., a fatality traffic crash occurred at the intersection of Lake Worth Road and 120th Avenue South in the incorporated city of Wellington, Palm Beach County, Florida. This investigation revealed that John B Goodman was driving a 2007 black Bentley GTC southbound on 120th Avenue South in the southbound lane. Goodman was traveling through a stop sign and entered the intersection of Lake Worth Road when he collided with Scott Wilson who was driving a 2006 Hyundai Sonata passenger vehicle westbound on Lake Worth Road, as he entered the intersection. As a result of this collision Scott Wilson was killed. This conclusion is based on the dynamics of the collision, physical evidence and witness testimony by Lisa Pembleton. Physical evidence at the scene revealed one set of foot prints leading from the [mal rest position of the Bentley GTC to Lisa Pembleton's residence. These footprints were the only footprints present on the dirt roadway. The footprint pattern showed a smooth sole with a large heeL Upon making contact with Goodman in the hospital, I saw he was wearing cowboy boots and they were covered in sand similar to the sand on the roadway. Pembleton stated she was asleep in her trailer and Goodman came into her trailer asking to use her phone. She said Goodman told her he was involved in a collision at I20th Avenue and Lake Worth Road and needed to use her phone. Pembleton stated Goodman used her phone. He first called a male named Carlos and left him a message. He then told her he had been drinking and asked her if he should call 911. She said Goodman then called 911 and told the dispatcher about the crash and where he was. During the 911 call placed by Goodman, he stated he was driving south on 120th Avenue South and pulled in front of someone. He stated the crash occurred at 120th Avenue South and Lake Worth Road. On the day of the collision at 3:45 a.m., I met with Goodman at Wellington Regional Medical Center and I noticed his eyes were bloodshot and I smelled a strong odor or an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. Goodman appeared impaired and his actions seemed slow. I asked Goodman for his identification and he fumbled through his wallet and pockets. I asked Goodman ifhe wanted to speak with me about the collision and he stated he wanted an attorney present. I conducted a forced blood draw on Goodman based on the dynamics of the collision and my observations of him. The samples were turned into the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Crime Lab for analysis. On 2/12/2010 at 5:00 p.m., I received a preliminary blood alcohol result for John B Goodman's blood. The result showed Goodman had a unlawful blood aIcohollevel at the time of the blood draw. Therefore, based on the aforementioned information, this investigator concludes that John B. Goodman was operating the 2007 Bentley GTC while under the influence and ran through a stop sign. This caused a violent collision with the passenger side of Wilson's vehicle, killing him. Due to exigent circumstances the driver side frontal airbags were taken from the vehicle. The vehicle's doors were damaged from the collision and would not close. These airbags contained DNA evidence from the persons sitting in the driver seat. Due to the compromised ability to seal the vehicles occupant cabin and the possibility of
Page 2 of 3 Affidavit
inclement weather conditions these airbags were taken to preserve the DNA evidence. This DNA evidence will identify the occupant it protected during the collision. The weather, at the time of the collision, was clear and calm. The roadway was dry. Further, the roadway characteristics and traffic control were adequate and did not contribute to the causation of this collision. This investigation is being conducted under PBSO case # 10-037896. ANAL YSIS I CONCLUSION: . Your Affiant is a 15 year law enforcement officer with over 8 years of experience as a Traffic Homicide Investigator. Your Affiant is the currently assigned to the Traffic Homicide Unit of the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office. Your Affiant has received over 1600 hours of training as a Traffic Homicide Investigator. Your Affiant has investigated over 64 vehicular homicide crashes. Based on the available evidence, interviews, forensic analysis and this investigation, the following conclusions are made concerning this crash: Investigation established the driver, John B Goodman, of the Bentley GTC ran a stop sign while driving under the influence, killing Scott Wilson. The items to be seized with this warrant are to be used for obtaining physical evidence and DNA testing for the purpose of placing' John Goodman, in the driver's seat at the time of the collision.
EXECUTION OF WARRANT: The search warrant shall be served by your Affiant or any other officer pursuant to Florida Statues 933.07, and said warrant may be served on Sunday if so necessary. WHEREFORE, Affiant swears under oath that the above information is true, and requests the issuance of a search/seizure warrant to search and seize the samples of DNA and evidence as previously described and affirmed.
