WELLINGTON (CBSMiami) — A polo executive was sent back to jail after tampering with his ankle monitoring device.

On Wednesday, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office was alerted that Goodman tampered with the device at his Wellington home, where he had been under house arrest since May.

The house arrest sentence was pending an appeal of Goodman’s 16-year sentence for DUI-manslaughter in the February, 2010 death of a 23-year-old man. Scott Wilson’s car flipped into a canal after it was hit by the Bentley Goodman was driving while drunk.

After finding Goodman had fiddled with the device, officials sent him back to Palm Beach County Jail around 11:45 p.m. The Sheriff’s Office said no additional charges were levied against Goodman.

Goodman was later released on a $7 million bond, put under restrictions, and again required to wear an electronic monitoring device.
