Couple accused of spending money they raised for homeless veteran

He spent his last $20 to make sure a woman he didn't know got home safely. Now, that same woman is accused of spending money she raised on his behalf on frivolous things.

Here's part of the original story posted on GoFundMe:

Driving into Philly one night, I made the mistake of thinking that I would be able to make it all the way down I- 95 with my gas light on. Needless to say, I was wrong. I never ran out of gas before, and my heart was beating out of my chest. I pulled over as far as I could, and got out of the car to head to the nearest gas station. That’s when I met Johnny. Johnny sits on the side of the road every day, holding a sign. He saw me pull over and knew something was wrong. He told me to get back in the car and lock the doors. A few minutes later, he comes back with a red gas can.  Using his last 20 dollars to make sure I could get home safe. 

The campaign ended up raising more than $400,000.

Philadelphia lawyer Jacqueline Promislo represents the homeless man, Johnny Bobbitt Jr. She recently told the New York Post, "There is in my mind about $300,000 that was raised for Johnny that he doesn’t have — and that they now say they don’t have." Instead, she claims, the money was spent on lavish vacations and a shoe collection.
