BURLINGTON COUNTY, N.J. (WTXF) - A New Jersey man at the center of an investigation into where the $400,000 raised for a homeless Samaritan went, was arrested for unrelated outstanding warrants Monday night.
Florence Township police say Mark D’Amico was arrested at his home around 9:20 p.m. D’Amico was processed for the warrants and then transported to Burlington County Jail. He has since posted bail and is not in custody.
D’Amico and his girlfriend, Kate McClure, are the couple accused in a lawsuit brought by Johnny Bobbit of mismanaging donations raised for him through GoFundMe. The couple have denied any wrongdoing or misusing the funds.
Last week, authorities executed a search warrant at the couple’s home in Bordentown, New Jersey, just one day after a judge ordered them to appear in court this week.
The Burlington County Prosecutors office confirmed that the search was related to the Johnny Bobbitt matter and no charges had been filed.
Florence Township police say D’Amico’s arrest was not related to the Bobbitt matter.
Earlier this week, the couple’s attorney, Ernest Badway, said one of both of his clients could be indicted by the prosecutor’s office in the matter and that his firm would no longer represent them in the civil case against Johnny Bobbitt.
Superior Court Judge Paula Dow agreed Monday to pause the case until December in light of last week's raid on the couple's home.
In addition to a BMW, investigators seized cash, jewelry, and all personal and financial records from the couple last week.
