The Lesson: Don't Steal Nick Cage's Car Cash

April 24, 2007
(Surprisingly, Cage was not available for photo op - so here's a Cobra shot instead.)

Nic Cage may regret a few roles he's taken, but one big regret of his was taken care of by the courts today.

Cage, fellow New Orleanian and car collector, got word that a car broker who had lined up to sell some of his classics and later walked off with the proceeds, was sentenced to five years in prison and $1.8 million in restitution.

Peter Brotman had agreed to sell Cage's Ferraris and Cobras. He did - but Cage got shorted $300,000 in proceeds from an April 2004 sale. Brotman also was convicted of defrauding a bank in the proceedings.
