Nicolas Cage Arrested For Abusing Wife, Taunts Cops, Sprung By Dog the Bounty Hunter

by at . Comments

Nicolas Cage was arrested early this morning in New Orleans for domestic abuse against his wife, Alice, along with one count of disturbing the peace.

In town filming a movie called Medallion, Nic and Alice disagreed over the exact address of an apartment they were renting in the city, police report.

Standing in front of a property he believed they were renting, he grabbed her by the arm to pull her to what he believed was the correct address.

Nicolas Cage Mug Shot

Police say there were no visible signs of injury on her arm, but just the same, he joined our celebrity mug shot gallery with this hilarious pic.

The NOPD went on to say Cage then began to hit parked cars and later attempted to get into a taxi. Cops say Cage eventually got into a cab.

A police officer ordered him out ... which "prompted Cage to start yelling" and basically daring cops to arrest him ... which always goes well.

It only got wilder from there.

The police came and told Nic and his wife to just go home, however, that's when the actor allegedly told cops, "Why don't you just arrest me?"

The cops then reiterated that he and his wife should just go home. Cage then repeated his dare to cops, who ultimately decided to oblige.

He was charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace.

Later, it was revealed that Alice is reportedly not a complaining witness and doesn't want him charged, saying there was no physical contact.

Nic was then released on bond ... thanks to Duane "Dog" Chapman! Dog and his wife Beth arrived at the scene and sprung him for $11K!

Beth posted on her Twitter, "My guy just walked out of the jail damn new Orleans 8 hours holy cow that's a lot of time to Process one guy."

More details to come as this ridiculous story develops ...

Wow! First off I just want to say not only is this a waste of space on fb, but its ridiculous that a person cannot touch their partners anymore without it being considered "domestic violence." I mean, do the cops have nothing better to do in New Orleans than to bother celebrities? Nicholas Cage, has been crucified in the media enough with his tax evasion, and I know it comes with the territory but it seems like when a celebrity such as Charlie Sheen and Nicholas Cage act a little crazy its front page news and on every news channel. But when an average every day person commits rape or murder, especially in New Orleans, you don't hear anything about it. All I'm saying, is although these people are celebrities, they are bound to make mistakes just like the rest of us. So just give them a break, and let them live their lives peacefully with their family!

Nicolas Cage is a stellar actor who works hard to ensure his roles are credible. One of his earliest films, Wild at Heart, is one of the best acted roles of the 20th century. Face Off, Bad Lieutenant, Raising Arizona, Leaving Las Vegas, all of these are great films that take an exceptional actor to make them great and memorable. If Nicolas Cage needs to spend some money and vent in public once in a while, then so be it.
