Nicolas Cage was arrested for a domestic dispute this morning. He wasÂ allegedlyÂ drunk while out in New Orleans and got a little rough with his wife, Alice. A nearby cabbie saw this and calledÂ theÂ cops…then drunk Cage taunted the police to arrest him!
TMZ has learned Nic Cage was arrested early Saturday morning in New Orleans for domestic abuse.
According to official records, he was arrested for one count of domestic abuse and one count of disturbing the peace.
It seems that Cage was arrested after taunting the police to arrest him following a dispute with his wife and so they did!!!
Nic was arrested in New Orleans this morning after daring the police to arrest him following a loud argument with his wife.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … Nic was “very drunk” on the streets of N.O. when a cab driver saw him loudly arguing with his wife Alice.
We’re told the cabbie called the police and said in addition to the screaming and yelling … he saw Nic push her.
We’re told the police came and told Nic and his wife to just go home. That’s when Nic 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.
At that point, police took Nic intoÂ custodyÂ and charged him with …domestic abuse and disturbing the peace.
Our sources say Nic is still inÂ custodyÂ and a bail hearing will he held shortly.
We’re also told Nic’s wife is not a complaining witness and does not want him charged — and says there was no physical contact.
I have come to theÂ conclusionÂ that alcohol is no good…and that’s why I don’t drink lol!
