Here's a quick recap thus far. Joshua Woodward is a Los Angeles restaurateur with business ties to Chicago and Miami. He partnered with Chef Govind Armstrong to bring Table 8 to South Beach. That company is now bankrupt. He is also partner in a company that licenses the 8 oz. Burger Bar location in Miami. He has nothing to with day-to-day operations at the Miami location.) 

Woodward was arrested on suspicion of purposely causing the death of his unborn 13 week old child, a fetus. He was not formally charged, meaning he can only be held 48 hours. His bail was set at $2 million.
