Grafton, WV Police Chief Challenges Escape Artist To A Duel: Doubts Michael Griffin Can Keep Title

Police Chief Bobby Beltner of the Grafton, WV Police Department Challenges Escape Artist Michael Griffin Saturday night May 27 at the Spirit of Grafton Festival.

Dear Michael:

"Im Bobby Beltner Chief of Police in Grafton, WV.  I have been with the department for 24 years and the Chief since 2004.  I caught your show last year while one of our Police Officers put you in a straitjacket, you got out and we really enjoyed your show, however I wish now to come up and lock you in several pairs of handcuffs both new and old along with leg irons inside an airtight waterproof container and secure you in a manner that I believe would be impossible for you to make your escape from the heavy irons or the container.

Please let me know if you are up to accepting this challenge."

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

Michael Griffin accepts the challenge with the condition that Police Chief Beltner must remain on stage along with Griffin's assistant in the event anything should go wrong including possible suffocation.

Challenge to take place Saturday on the Sprint Stage at the Spirit of Grafton Festival.

Escape Artist Michael Griffin Returning To Spirit of Grafton WV Festival

He’s been on America's Got Talent and is the only person to win TV’s World Magic Awards twice in the same category and now Michael Griffin, America’s Escape Hero (www.escapeguy.com) is returning to The Spirit of Grafton Celebration bringing his award winning act and a chance that some lucky people in the audience can take a shot at tying him with rope, if he fails to make good his escape they go home $1,000.00 richer. 

According to Griffin, “This is the best job in the World, I love going out on stage and entertaining the audience.  Part of the fun and I must say suspense is I never know what’s going to happen.  I see the look of wonder on their faces and then in some of their eyes I see them sizing me up for a chance at the $1,000.00 rope challenge.  I tell you I understand what the old west gunfighters felt like, at times I feel as if I am the last gladiator in the new Rome.”

Escape Artist Opens Online Store Selling Rare Antique Handcuffs

Michael Griffin, America's Escape Hero and Award Winning Magician has had a love affair all his life with complicated things.  The "Boss Of Bondage" began collecting handcuffs and leg irons ata  very early age trying to figure out how they worked.  Padlocks would vanish, never the contents they were protecting, but the locks would vanish and somehow end up under the Escape Artist's deft hands and curious mind.  Handcuffs soon entered into the fray when walking down a street in Riverside, California Michael's eyes were caught by a gleam in an antique store's window, a gleam that would shape his life by unlocking adventures not dreamed.

The website is actually a new iteration of his hobby that started as the IHE, International Handcuff Exchange which led to Michael amassing one of the largest collections in the World of rare handcuffs, leg irons and restraints.

The new website is OLDHANDCUFFS.NET 

Michael is always buying handcuffs, feel free to contact him with your old irons or let him know what your looking for.

On my way to do a private magic show: I never expected to see this....

So, I'm walking up to house to perform a private magic show in Powell, OH.  The host had told me please make sure you enter thru the garage, the door will be open and just come inside, we were supposed to surprise the crowd as they had no idea I was going to be entertaining.  

I get into the garage and I had the neatest surprise waiting for me.....a noose!  My host had a great sense of humor and told me he had watched a lot of my videos (http://www.youtube.com/escapeguy), I guess he liked the escape from the hangman's noose I did.  Totally cool host and crowd.  Love my job, love making #magicshows fun  #privateparty in #cbus
