Timeline of the rise and fall of Johnny Bobbitt's GoFundMe account: Chad Pradelli reports for Action News, September 10, 2018

It began with a homeless man helping a woman who ran out of gas on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia in the fall of 2017.

John Bobbitt spent his last $20 to help Kate McClure get fueled up and back on the road. In return, she and boyfriend Mark D'Amico started GoFundMe account to help Bobbitt get back on his feet.

The campaign went viral, and $400,000 was quickly raised.

By the summer of 2018, however, the feel-good story turned into a high-profile dispute complete with allegations of missing money - and the looming possibility of criminal charges.

6abc's Chad Pradelli takes a look at the unlikely sequence of events in this unfolding saga.
