Finally, some answers!
This morning, Nicolas Cage was arrested on a domestic abuse and disorderly conduct charge in New Orleans. We have since learned that Nic has been released on $11K bail and have gotten official word from the New Orleans Police Department on exactly what happened. In the PD's official statement, they explain:
"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 signs of injury on his wife's arm.
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."
Sounds like he was really doing a number on himself at the bar. Someone should have told him to take it easy at the Big Easy!
