Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage has been arrested in New Orleans on one count of domestic abuse and one count of disturbing the peace, according to police records. According to the New Orleans Police Department, Cage, 47, was "heavily intoxicated and arguing with his wife Alice Kim, 27, in front of a home at 11:30 p.m. Friday on Dumaine Street in the city's French Quarter, insisting that the house they were in front of was their rental property.
Police said that Cage grabbed his wife by her upper arm and dragged her towards the property that he believed they were renting -- there were no visible signs of injury to Kim's arm.
The actor then began to strike cars in the immediate vicinity and attempted to jump into a taxi. At this point a police officer "immediately observed that Cage was heavily intoxicated and ordered him out of the cab, which prompted Cage to start yelling.''
