Home is Where He Says It Is: Nicolas Cage Cuffed


Nick Cage done did it again- last night, during an evening stroll in the French Quarter, Mr. Cage and his wife stopped to discuss a residence on the corner of Dumaine and Chartes. The discussion was centered around whether or not the residence was in fact where the couple were staying that night; when the Mrs. expressed that it was not the correct address, Cage forcefully grabbed her arm and dragged her towards the house. The violent behavior boosted when the actor began striking parked cars on the 600 block of Dumaine, while simultaneously attempting to hail down a taxicab.

 

Nearby pedestrians noticed the commotion and alerted an officer to the site, who approached the (quite) inebriated Cage and arrested him for domestic abuse battery and disturbing the peace. An accumulative bail of 11K has been posted, and a court date set for May 31st. 

 

Knowing where to return safe and sound at the end of the night is a crucial skill one must learn in this city, a lesson one would think big Nick would know, and know well; Will Cage end up in the cage?
