Magician Busted for Disappearing from Court Date

8/10/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jonathan PendragonWorld famous magician Jonathan Pendragon probably really wanted to be at his arraignment in Ventura County on Thursday -- but considering he was in a medical facility on a mandatory hold, he had to miss it.

Pendragon was arrested last month for allegedly firing a bullet into the floor during a dispute with his wife. Fast-forward to last Sunday -- cops picked up Pendragon again, this time for trying to break into the family home, violating his wife's restraining order against him.

Law enforcement tells us when they showed up, Pendragon was in his full performance costume, threatening to kill himself. He was placed on a 5150 hold at a medical facility in Ventura County.

And he wasn't there when his arraignment came up, so he was arrested by Ventura County police for failure to appear.

Pendragon's next magic show might be the fellas down in cellblock B.

Hi. What's a "permornace costume"? Is it some kind of new alien technology and if so where can I find it?

if he was in a mandatory hold at the hospital, why would he be arrested for not showing up?

Jonathan and Charlotte Pendragon are the BEST magicians working today. They are world famous and very nice people. Jonathan is having problems with his medication. They will get through these terrible times.

Pendragons were very big in their day -- stage prop illusionists capable of amazing other magicians. Almost died a few years back when an arrow trick malfunctioned and went thru his chest. Wasn't able to capture the old magic after that. Sad to see them just self destruct in such an bazaar tabloid way. Ok, still not caring? To help UP Jon's stock, he was Belushi's stunt double who did the back flips down the Church aisle in the Blues Brothers.

I saw this guy escape from a locked crate wearing straight jacket and he can't get into his own house? That's so sad.
