John Travolta arrives for Bahamas extortion trial
NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) - September 23, 2009 Travolta pulled up in an entourage of sport utility vehicles and entered a police station across the street from the Nassau courthouse. Bahamas police officers surrounded the courthouse. Wednesday is the actor's first appearance at the trial. A paramedic and a former Bahamas senator allegedly tried to blackmail Travolta with private information following the death of his chronically ill son at a family vacation home in the island chain off Florida. Both have pleaded innocent to extortion charges at the trial that began Monday.
