Lawyer denies claims against magician

? Days after FBI agents searched a Las Vegas warehouse belonging to David Copperfield and a casino theater where the magician regularly performs, his lawyer rebutted an allegation that Copperfield “forced himself” on a woman.

“An unidentified woman has made serious allegations against David Copperfield,” lawyer David Chesnoff said Friday in a statement.

“It is important these allegations be put into perspective,” Chesnoff said. “Although authorities have not revealed her identity to us, we know these allegations are false because David Copperfield has never forced himself on anyone.”

Neither Chesnoff nor law enforcement officials would provide details about the allegation or the warehouse search.

Seattle FBI agent Robbie Burroughs said Thursday that the Las Vegas investigation was part of a Seattle case.

“The Seattle case is pending and that means we can’t say anything about it,” Burroughs said.
