EXCESS CASH LANDS PRODUCER IN COURT

Broadway producer David Merrick faced a hearing in federal court in Brooklyn, N.Y., Monday after he allegedly tried to fly out of the country with $145,000 in cash and traveler's checks while declaring only $5000.

The 78-year-old Merrick and his 37-year-old live-in companion, Natalie Lloyd, were detained Wednesday at Kennedy Airport by Customs agents, and missed their scheduled flight to London.Federal law requires travelers to declare anything exceeding $10,000 that is being carried in or out of the country.
