(PHILLY.COM) — Johnny Bobbitt is on the lam.
Bobbitt, the formerly homeless veteran charged in a $400,000 GoFundMe scheme, failed to show up in a New Jersey court Tuesday afternoon to face charges that he violated court-ordered conditions that allowed him to be released from jail while awaiting trial.
State Superior Court Judge Mark Tarantino ordered a warrant for Bobbitt’s arrest after he was more than an hour late for his hearing in Mount Holly. Tarantino said Bobbitt has not been in contact with pretrial court officials since Dec. 17, three days after his release from the Burlington County Jail. The judge also said there is “indication” Bobbitt is again using drugs, but he did not elaborate.
