Last weekend, Nicolas Cage was arrested during a domestic dispute because he was drunk, and lost, and belligerent, and did we say drunk?
Anyway, that night while he was about to get arrested by the fuzz, he fell while holding his 5 year old son. This resulted in the officers taking notice of the skinned knee, and that Cage was trying to take care of a child while intoxicate. Not only that, but, a witness approached the officers a little bit later and said they saw Cage pull the kid, Kal-El, to the ground:
“As Mr. Cage was being transported, Sergeant Smith was approached by Officer Wild who was still on scene, he informed Sergeant Smith that an unknown white male passer-by, who was walking a dog, stated that he observed Mr. Cage pull the male child to the ground by his hand,” the incident report reads.
“Based upon this information, and Mrs. Cage’s earlier statement, a child abuse detective was notified.”
And rightly so! Even though they didn't find anything that would merit further investigation from that night, we still think it's the right call, and there is also a very real chance that a representative of Child Protective Service may be contacted and a full investigation launched.
Clean up your act, Nic! For your kids! For your career! We don't like seeing you like this. We like seeing you make movies like a boss!
