WEST PALM BEACH (CBSMiami) – South Florida polo mogul John Goodman has been found guilty for a fatal DUI car crash in 2010.

On Tuesday, Palm Beach County jurors in the retrial found the 51-year-old guilty of DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide – as reported by CBS4’s news partner the Miami Herald.

Goodman was found guilty in 2012, but the Palm Beach Post reported the “conviction was overturned because of a juror’s misconduct, including a drinking experiment and withholding of key information. “

According to police, a drunken Goodman ran a stop sign and rammed his Bentley into 23-year-old Scott Patrick Wilson’s car. Wilson’s car then rolled into a canal where he died.

Police said Goodman left the scene and waited nearly an hour to call 911.
