Nicholas Cage was arrested and charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace after an argument in the French Quarter in New Orleans with his wife Alice Kim, according to a report by People.com.
Cage and his wife were standing in front of a residence that he insisted was the property the couple was renting. She disagreed, and Cage grabbed her by the upper arm and pulled her to what he believed was the correct address. There were no visible signs of injury on his wife's arm, the New Orleans Police Department said in a statement.
People.com is also reporting that Duane Dog Chapman, also known as Dog the Bounty Hunter helped Cage by posting his $11,000 bond.
I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage and will not be granting any interviews about my client as I wish to respect his privacy, Chapman told E! News in a statement.
I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show. This is what I do for a living. There are two sides of my job: I release my clients after they have been arrested; and pick them up if they don't show up in court. I do not believe the latter will be the case for Mr. Cage.
The actor then began striking vehicles and later attempted to get into a taxi. At that point, an officer who had been flagged down by onlookers drove up on the couple, immediately observed that Cage was heavily intoxicated and ordered him out of the cab, which prompted Cage to start yelling. The officers subsequently took Cage to Central Lock-up, NOPD said in a statement.
Cage is scheduled to appear in court on May 31.
