April 26, 2006 NPR doesn't usually cover celebrities but here's an item that our intrepid blog assistant, the amazing Ben Brudevold-Newman, dug up on the Web. Turns out that this past Sunday, magician David Copperfield (didn't he used to be engaged to a supermodel, or did he just saw one in half?) was mugged on the street in West Palm Beach by an armed gunman. According to the item, Cooperfield's two female companions turned over their cash, but the magician practiced a little of his trademark sleight-of-hand and produced only empty pockets even though he had a lot of cash on him at the time. The police report uses Copperfield's given name, David Kotkin... a name he made that disappear long ago.
