    A Park Forest dad stole a dumb idea from the script of the Nicholas Cage movie "Raising Arizona" - and $108 cash - in a terrifying gunpoint home invasion, police said.

    Jeremy Humphrey used a semi-automatic handgun to rob a couple at their home on March 15, The Daily Southtown reports.

    He said he did it because his baby needed diapers, prosecutors say.

    But the move, which apes a comedy convenience store diaper heist in the hit 1987 movie, landed 21-year-old Humphrey in the clink.
