Don't know if it is true but I hope he did get arrested. Cops have a hard enough job without dealing with cocky punks like Calen. That is my 2 cents.

Arrested for what? It wasn't real. The cop was fake. But from your post it sounds like you hope he was arrested anyway. From TMZ:

Magician Selling Weed To Cop -- Calen Morelli: Cop Is FAKE In Pot Magic Trick!
Magician Calen Morelli
Cop is FAKE
In Pot Magic Trick!
8/18/2014 2:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Magician Selling Weed To CopMagician Calen Morelli pulled a trick on everyone when he made it appear a cop slammed him against a wall in search of a bag of pot ... because the cop is an IMPOSTOR!!!

Calen appeared on TMZ Live Monday and spilled the beans ... the epic video -- which has nearly 8 million views -- is not what it seems.

Yes, the magic is real, but the guy in uniform is not a sworn donut-muncher ... well, at least not one with a badge.

Gotta say ... well done.

Yes, well done indeed. I wish I'd have thought of it.

And you call Calen a punk for getting some excellent promo?

I hadn't seen the TMZ link where he admits the cop was fake. Was it clever magic and marketing? Sure. I call Calen a cocky punk because I thought Calen came across as a cocky punk on his dvd set Function 9 and when I saw this video I thought it was more of the same from him. I am glad it was fake.

I'm with Bob, great marketing idea, wish I'd have thought of it as well! The actual slight looks great too, and I must admit to having a chuckle when the ''cop'' looks under his hat.

Even if he hadn't told everyone the cop was fake, it would surely have been easy to deduce it. As Bob said, a real cop would have noticed the camera. Therefore he would undoubtedly have confiscated it (or at least tried to) as it contained incriminating evidence, not just let both of them go!

I found the stunt amusing, I must admit.

I'm really surprised that magicians, of all people, got sucked into thinking it was real.
