A group of teenagers tried to hold up David Copperfield and two of his assistants at gunpoint in West Palm Beach, Florida on Sunday night. Copperfield’s assistants handed the robbers money, passports and cell phones, but Copperfield refused to hand them anything at all. Instead he used slight of hand to turn his pockets inside out and reveal nothing in them even though he had his wallet, passport and cell phone.

As the teens drove away he read the license plate on the car as his assistant dialed the authorities. The teens were arrested ten minutes later and the stolen items returned. Copperfield was quoted as saying, “I’m pretty good under pressure. That’s my job…call it reverse pickpocketing.” How cool is that!
