When magician David Copperfield was recently mugged at gunpoint, he successfully used his skills to conceal his valuables from the thief:
When Copperfield’s turn came, [accused mugger Dwayne] Riley was bamboozled. Copperfield told Page Two he pulled out all of his pockets for Riley to see he had nothing, even though he had a cellphone, passport and wallet stuffed in them. “Call it reverse pickpocketing,” Copperfield said. Riley jumped behind the wheel, and the car took off.
Riley and three other accomplices were quickly apprehended and are now in police custody. (Via Fark.)
