Academy Award- Winning Actor Nicolas Cage in Custody for Domestic Violence, Public Drunkenness


47-year-old Nicolas Cage is in police custody this morning after getting drunk last night in the French Quarter and arguing in the street with his wife.  He's booked with Domestic Abuse Battery, Disturbing the Peace and Public Drunkenness.  
 
Around 11:30pm last night Cage was arguing with his wife in the 600 block of
Dumaine Street
.  He and his wife were standing in front of a residence that he insisted was the property the couple was renting.  She disagreed, and Cage grabbed her by the upper arm and pulled her to what he believed was the correct address.  There were no visible signs of injury on his wife's arm.

The actor then began striking vehicles and later attempted to get into a taxi.    
At that point, an officer who had been flagged down by on-lookers drove up on the couple, immediately observed that Cage was heavily intoxicated, and ordered him out of the cab, which prompted Cage to start yelling. The officers subsequently took Cage to Central Lock-Up.
