TMZ has footage of Nicolas Cage arguing with his wife in a tattoo parlor before he gets arrested.
Cage was intoxicated and basically a mess. He was in town to shoot his movie Medallion
He was later arrested for domestic abuse and disturbing the peace and held on $11,000 bond. The Hollywood Gossip reports that Duane “Dog” Chapman posted bail for Cage. Yes, Dog The Bounty Hunter bailed out Cage.
MSNBC reports that Chapman gave the following statement:
“Media from around the world have been requesting interviews with me today after reports surfaced about my posting a bond for actor Nicolas Cage in New Orleans,” Chapman said in a statement to E! News. “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. 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.”
Well, that’s amusing.
