Actor Nicholas Cage was arrested after an abusive drunken scene and tirade in New Orleans' French Quarter on April 16, 2011. The trouble apparently began when Cage and his wife, Alice Kim, were walking by a house that Cage said they were renting. When Kim disagreed, Cage allegedly grabbed her arm. He then tried to hail a cab and angrily started striking passing vehicles. When confronted by a police officer, he started yelling at the officer. Cage was arrested on charges of domestic abuse battery, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness. The financially strapped star
was released on $11,000 bond Saturday, which was paid by renowned bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman.
In December 2010 Cage was taped leaving a Romanian night club in a rage, though he had allegedly been provoked and was not detained by police.
