Magic man

By MATT TAIBBI  |  August 19, 2009

Chicago Blackhawks star winger and 2007 NHL Rookie of the Year Patrick Kane and his cousin, James Kane, were arrested this past week in Patrick's home town of Buffalo and charged with felony robbery. It seems that the two lunkhead goons gave a cabbie $15 for a $13.80 fare. The cabbie gave them a dollar back but then told them he didn't have 20 cents for the rest. Their response? Naturally, the pair tore the money from the 62-year-old cabbie's hand and started punching him in the face and head.

Patrick Kane earns $875,000 a year, plus bonuses — guess a tip was out of the question. Give him 60 points for severe dickness.
