Cage In The Cage

Nicolas Cage was arrested in New Orleans early this morning on suspicion of domestic abuse.

 

Nicolas CageIs Nicolas Cage on a downward spiral?

Cage was arrested early this morning after a cabbie witnessed the actor push his wife, Alice, during a heated fight. According TMZ, police attempted to diffuse the situation upon arrival, but a seemingly drunk Cage proceeded to taunt them. "Why don't you arrest me?" he repeated.

The police eventually obliged and Nicolas Cage was apprehended and charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace. His wife reportedly does not wish to press charges.

Cage is still behind bars and currently awaiting bail.

Can't be caged?

This isn't the first drunken scuffle for the Sorcerer's Apprentice actor. Cage had to be escorted back to his New Orleans hotel in early May for allegedly breaking a restaurant window. Although the restaurant did not press charges, police had to forcefully assist an inebriated Cage out of the restaurant and back to his lodging.

In December 2010, Cage was caught on tape speaking incoherently outside a Romanian nightclub. See the video below.

We hope the troubled star gets the help he needs.

What do you think? Are you surprised Nicolas Cage was arrested?

Alcoholism is a serious disease and Nic Cage is no different from any other human being suffering from it. Leave him alone. Plenty of people have gotten into heated arguments with their spouses. A little push doesn't mean it's domestic abuse. As long as that push doesn't lead to something more violent. I agree with everyone else and hope Nicolas Cage gets the help he needs.

Domestic abuse is never the answer. How many hours until Dr. Drew weighs in? LOL. Nicolas Cage is a great actor, so I hope to see him get his act together. Don't want to be the next Charlie Sheen!

Nicolas Cage needs to get some serious help, if not for domestic abuse, then for alcoholism. Seems like things just got heated and he pushed her. No harm done, really. But you never know. Hope Nic gets the help he needs.

Nicolas Cage arrested? I guess I'm not that surprised. He's always been a troubled guy, it seems. Loved him in Face/Off, though.
