Couple Who Allegedly Spent Money Raised for Homeless Man Lose New BMW in Police Raid
Johnny Bobbitt's lawyer has said that all the money is gone.
The couple who allegedly mishandled the $400,000 raised for a homeless man has had their new BMW confiscated by authorities.
Johnny Bobbitt famously came to the rescue of 28-year-old Kate McClure when her car stalled on a highway ramp last October, using his last $20 to pay for gas. In turn, she and her boyfriend, Mark D'Amico, started a GoFundMe page to raise money for Bobbitt that amassed more than $400,000.
But Bobbitt has claimed he was only given a fraction of the money, while the couple allegedly spent it on the aforementioned BMW, as well as vacations to California, Florida and Las Vegas.
McClure and D'Amico told Megyn Kelly on the "Today" show they were holding onto the money because Bobbitt used it to buy drugs.
"If he needed anything, he got it, there was never a question," D’Amico said.
Bobbitt has since sued the couple, alleging they treated the GoFundMe account as "their personal piggy bank to fund a lifestyle they could not otherwise afford."
In an interview with WPVI last week, Bobbitt said the couple treated him like a child.
"I had to ask them for everything," he said. "In the beginning, it was like a joke, they were like my parents. But the joke starts not being funny."
Bobbitt added that D'Amico is a "self-described gambling addict."
"I think it's pretty hypocritical for you to tell me that I can't manage my money because I might spend it on drugs," he said.
A judge recently ordered the pair to hand over whatever money is left, but Bobbitt's lawyer Chris Fallon said Tuesday that all of it is gone.
On Thursday, police raided McClure and D'Amico's home. Video showed the BMW being hauled away.
No criminal charges have been filed. The couple has denied any wrongdoing.
