Perhaps Ryan Brant just wanted to be closer to his old pal Jack Thompson.
After all, the $6.1 million Palm Beach fixer-upper (left) purchased by the disgraced former Take-Two CEO is just 90 minutes from Thompson's Coral Gables compound.
In any case, the Palm Beach Daily News details the sale, including a mention of Brant's legal difficulties. GamePolitics readers may recall that Brant pleaded guilty last year to committing massive stock option fraud while running Take-Two. He received a five-year probationary sentence and had to cough up $7 million to the government to put things right.
