Nicolas Cage Arrested for Domestic Abuse

Nicolas Cage was arrested in New Orleans early Saturday morning (April 16) for domestic abuse, according to TMZ.

The 47-year-old actor was arrested for one count of domestic abuse and one count of disturbing the peace, according to the official records. He is still being held in custody.

Nicolas was arrested after a cab driver saw him having an argument with his wife and called the police. The actor then reportedly taunted the policeman into arresting him.

Nicolas has been married to his wife Alice Kim for the past six and a half years. They have one son together, Kal-El.

  • vool

  • bobjustbob

    Wow so many famous people imploding lately, what is up with that. I agree like Betty White said, so many don’t appreciate their good fortune, the money and fame seem to make them whack. Hollywood seems to have lots of nutjobs.

  • Yepp

    So disappointed with him… Smh…

    @aq: nice je*rk off! –
    im sick about how many actors get away with being violent towards their wives.. or anyone really. im sure his PR team will clean this up.

    He didn’t hit his wife. It’s domestic abuse (verbally…barely!) and disturbing the peace. The cab driver got scared and reported him when all they were doing was arguing. Which seemed to tick Mr. Cage off even more, so when the police came and interrupted the arguing he “taunted” the police with stupid remarks. I was there, in fact many people were there and saw the whole thing. No one is beating anyone. He just looks like he got mad, he argued, she argued, cab driver over reacted, police came. And to the person named “JC” His movies are amazing!

    …a cab driver saw him having a “argument” with his wife, not beating her, huge difference.

  • zxc

    I guess she touched one of his wigs. Ooops.

  • ammie

    VERBAL abuse is still abuse

  • Julie R.

    He didn’t even hit her.She didn’t even press charges on him.The cab driver is a fool that should have known the difference between an argument and a beating.There was no hitting and pushing there.It was only a couple arguing,which is common between couples.Nothing new.
    The police officers exagerated.He was probably drunk,his wife denied he pushed her and didn’t press charges.These police officers were trying to get attention,and arrested a man for nothing.
    Looks like he didn’t hurt anyone…and commited no crime there.The police overreacted,and arrested him for nothing.
    Sad.These police officers should be punished and they should sue the cab driver,if nothing happened to her.There was no pushing there,so, no arrest.And all the couples fight verbally.Pathetic,the police reaction…

  • Ehm

    He named his son Kal-El? Now that should be considered child abuse…of all the stupid Hollywood baby names this one must be one of the worst!

  • cara

    i’m not surprised.

  • Mikado

    @Julie R.:
    Did you drink too much, or what is the reason for your sermon? Were you there?

    By the way: NOT all couples feel the need to have a fight, especially not in a way that frightens their child or others.

  • toby

    Great, another douche in Hollywood

  • taco

    “a man saw him…” This is enough for me to understand that Cage didn’t anything. Probably this man misunderstood the situation, a police man came and overreacted to Cage’s reaction.

  • Sarah

    Arrested over an argument? really? ok i don’t know the whole story…but married couples do argue y’know mr cab driver. Just dumb….from what i know.

  • Korean Wife

    He don’t like my fishy p’ssy.

  • kitty

    No one beat or harmed anyone! I heard they both argued. How many of us would like to be arrested for that situation-we have mostly all have had heated words with a spouse or BF of GF.

    His poor wife, Douche bag
