I don't think Chris Angel would be able to rough up a paper bag.
When the chips are down, the duvet is uncomfortable.

Apparently this is true. From The Las Vegas review Journal:

CRISS ANGEL ALTERCATION

An associate of Luxor headliner Criss Angel filed a police report Wednesday, alleging he was roughed up in the illusionist's office warehouse.

Joe Monti, whose real name is Joe Safuto, told Vegas Confidential that Angel "flipped out" Wednesday during a disagreement over a magic trick.

Monti, who gave his age as 52 and said he is about 5-foot-5, said he has been a consultant for Angel for years and endured his verbal abuse before. "But I draw the line at violence," Monti said in a telephone interview.

Monti said he was bruised when Angel "bumrushed me out the door" about 4 p.m.

Angel could not be reached for comment by deadline.

I confess, this is the first time I have ever heard the word, "Bumrushed".
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Proctologists use the term.

Bum rushed sounds like a prison exercise.

You people never heard of "bumrush"?

I can think of a Simpsons episode where it's used.
The one with Scorpio.

Marge - "I keep feeling we are going to get the bums rush."
Scorpio - "We don't have bums here Marge. If we did, they wouldn't be rushed, they would be aloud to go at their own pace."

I loved that episode. Scorpio had some great lines in it.

I am surprised that Angel didn't use the nunchaku. He seems like the kind of guy who would use the 'chucks.

You may have a point there.

Poor Joe. No one deserves to be treated like that.
Especially over magic.

Joe is 5'5 tall. Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos is a creep.

I don't know enough to say who's a creep or not.

An official statement has been made at http://www.vegasdeluxe.com/blogs/luxe-li......employe/

We can assure you that the claims against Criss are simply not true.

Coming from someone who gets paid from Criss Angel, I wouldn't expect any other statement. Isn't Criss Angel already disrespected within the magic community though? I've never hear a good word about him from other magicians.

I could really care less who is to blame, they both are rather pathetic when you think about it. I remember when Banachek got fired by Criss Angel because Banachek wouldn't be his little puppet.
