Dane Cook

Dane Cook’s half-brother, Darryl McCauley, has been in charge of Dane’s finances since the 90’s, but today he’ll in all likelihood no longer hold that esteemed position. That’s because according to TMZ, Darryl was arrested and charged with three counts of larceny and forgery. Darryl allegedly faked a $3 million check and gave himself an early or late Christmas present. The Boston Globe goes into more detail saying Darryl bilked Cook out of his money over the past 18 months.

As business manager, he would manage his client’s financial affairs, including the receipt and payment of bills, and the receipt and deposit of income and revenue from various businesses his client controlled.

Between July 2007 and December 2008, prosecutors say, McCauley stole millions of dollars from his former client’s business accounts by transferring funds to his own personal accounts. In one instance, he allegedly forged Cook’s signature for a $3 million check from the entertainer’s account to himself.

McCauley used the money for personal use, Coakley’s office said, and an investigation is ongoing.

Darryl probably didn’t even need to steal from Dane. They seemed pretty close so Dane would have given him whatever he needed. Maybe not $3 million or however much he was stealing, but maybe another cheeseburger to go with his extra value meal. But absolutely no supersizing. Let’s not get too crazy.
