Houston magnate John Goodman was convicted in Florida for causing a fatal collision in a drunk driving accident four years ago, chron.com reported on October 28.
According to reports, Goodman, 51, was found guilty of DUI resulting in manslaughter and homicide with a vehicle. The polo mogul reportedly struck another vehicle that was being driven by Scott Patrick Wilson, 23, in West Palm Beach.
