David Arquette fine after car accident (dragon's blood comes in handy)

March 4, 2011 |  6:49 pm

David-arqette-dragons-blood David Arquette is fine after getting in a head-on car accident in Beverly Hills on Friday -- and, who knew, it appears he might be related to Charlie Sheen in some way.

"I got into a car accident but I'm fine," Arquette said Friday afternoon on Twitter. "Luckily I have dragon's blood running through my veins. Haha Thank you for all your concern."

This dragon's blood revelation, of course, comes the same week as Sheen's admission that he actually has tiger's blood. Our B-positive blood is suddenly looking so -- inadequate. Not to mention at a distinct disadvantage in a jungle brawl.

The 39-year-old actor swerved into oncoming traffic while he was trying to avoid another car around 2 p.m. Friday, said TMZ, which had a picture of him lying on the grass nearby after the crash. His Cadillac was pretty munched up in front, and the actor was taken in an ambulance to a nearby hospital. The accident happened in the 600 block of N. Doheny Drive near Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills, according to KABC.

Arquette and wife Courteney Cox have been separated since October.

One last thing, though: Arquette's first tweet about the accident read, "Remember to wear your seatbelt -- wish I was."

We're going to assume he was joking. Or else we'd have to slap him upside the head.
