WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The retrial of a South Florida polo mogul has again found him guilty in a fatal drunken-driving crash.

Palm Beach County jurors found 51-year-old John Goodman guilty Tuesday of DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide after just four hours deliberating.

It was Goodman’s second conviction in as many years.

The Palm Beach Post (https://bit.ly/133ktK7) reports that Goodman’s 2012 conviction was overturned because of a juror’s misconduct, including a drinking experiment and withholding of key information.

Police say a drunken Goodman ran a stop sign in February 2010 and rammed his black Bentley into 23-year-old Scott Patrick Wilson’s car, causing it to roll into a canal, where the young man died.

Authorities say Goodman left the scene and waited nearly an hour to call 911.
