Police in the Bahamas have detained an island lawmaker and a paramedic in an alleged plot to extort money from actor John Travolta, both who were by the Tavolta's side in the moments leading up to and after the death of their only son, Jett.

Senior Assistant Commissioner of Police Marvin Dames says Senator Pleasant Bridgewater has been held since Thursday in the case.

A second suspect is ambulance driver Tarino Lightbourne, who was detained on Friday. Lightbourne was quoted by several tabloids describing efforts to revive Travolta's 16-year-old son Jett.

It was me, him and Jett, Lightbourne told ABC's Good Morning America on Jan. 5. I'll never forget this day. I saw him lean over and hug his son and kiss his son and tell him he loved him and I did everything I could. I saw love in his eyes, I saw love. [Travolta] hugged him, put his arm around him, kissed him on the forehead and the cheek and told him he loved him. He then turned to me and gave me a hug and said, you guys did a wonderful job.

Jett died of a seizure earlier on Jan.2 at a family vacation home on Grand Bahama island.
