Johnny Bobbitt received worldwide praise after he gave a stranded motorist in Philadelphia his last $20, so she could get gas previous year. McClure and D'Amico chose to try to help him get back on his feet and set up the GoFundMe account that drew $403,000 and more than 14,000 donors.
A judge on Thursday ordered a New Jersey couple who raised more than $400,000 for a homeless man online to transfer the money to the court after they refused to give it to the man in one lump sum.
"The irreparable harm will be if they spend any more of Mr. Bobbitt's money or, as Mr. D'Amico claimed, he'll burn the money before giving it to Mr. Bobbitt", said attorney for Johnny Bobbitt, Christopher Fallon.
Johnny Bobbitt became a viral sensation in October past year when he used his last $20 to buy petrol for Kate McClure, who was stranded after running out of fuel on a motorway exit ramp near Philadelphia.
The judge ordered the couple to transfer the money into an escrow account and hire a forensic accountant to review the financial records within 10 days. "He didn't have any ability to take care of himself there".
The lawsuit alleges that McClure and D'Amico used the "GoFundMe account as their personal piggy bank to fund a lifestyle that they could not otherwise afford". The couple told the paper they gave Bobbitt more than half the money but are withholding the rest until he gets a job and is drug-free. But suddenly she had a new BMW, and the couple was taking vacations to Florida and California and Las Vegas, Bobbitt told the Inquirer.
According to Badway, Bobbitt asked for the vehicles to be in McClure's name.
"My clients tried to help [Mr Bobbitt]", he said.

If things go that far, it's expected to set up a legal challenge by the Republican-led Federal Communications Commission (FCC ). For example, a company could not give free speedy access to its own streaming service but slow down Netflix.
And Bobbitt told the Inquirer that D'Amico gambled away some of the GoFundMe money at a casino in Philadelphia.
But the relationship has gone sour.
"From what I can see, the GoFundMe account raised $402,000 and GoFundMe charged a fee of approximately $30,000", Bobbitt's lawyer Chris Fallon told CNN on August 25.
Ms McClure, an admin assistant, and her carpenter boyfriend, say that they were anxious the homeless man would spend the money on drugs.
The money that came to Bobbitt couldn't stop his addiction.
Bobbitt's attorney told The Post that he is now in detox and working to get his life back.
An attorney retained by the veteran said that they feared that the money would disappear before an accounting was provided to the court but would not respond to questions about their intentions to sue the couple for money beyond that raised with the GoFundMe campaign. And within 13 days, D'Amico said on "Megyn Kelly Today", Bobbitt had blown through it.
