In April,a group of kids decided it would be a good idea to rob a guy and two female companions exiting a performing arts center in West Palm Beach, FL. Unfortunately, that person was David Copperfield.

Copperfield, 50, and two female assistants were walking from the Kravis Center to their tour bus when they were approached by the teens April 23. The assistants handed over money and a cellphone, but the illusionist turned his pockets inside out to reveal nothing, although he was carrying his passport, wallet and cell phone.

I had forgotten about this story until I saw an update this morning. I can’t wait for the Law & Order episode about this case.
