Nicholas Cage Arrest Updates: Tattoo Shop Argument and Video, Dog the Bounty Hunter’s Commentary, and More Chaos

Nicholas Cage has had one hell of a weekend.

For anyone who hasn’t heard, the actor best known for his hair was arrested in New Orleans early Saturday morning on one count of domestic abuse and one count of disturbing the peace.

According to RadarOnline, Cage was “very drunk” and arguing loudly with his wife, Alice Kim, both in a tattoo shop and on the street about a home he mistakenly believed was his own.  Kim tried to correct him, and Cage allegedly pulled Kim by the arm to the home he believed was their rental. A statement released by the site reads:

“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 onlookers 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.”

When officers arrived on the scene, they reportedly told Cage and his wife to go home.  At that point, witnesses said, Cage dared officers to arrest him twice, and they took him up on the offer.

To add another layer to the story, the person to post the $11,000 bond for Cage was none other than Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman.

According to a statement Dog made to E! News,

“Media from around the world have been requesting interviews with me today after reports surfaced about my posting a bond for actor Nicolas Cage in New Orleans…I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage and will not be granting any interviews about my client as I wish to respect his privacy. I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show.

“This is what I do for a living…There are two sides of my job: I release my clients after they have been arrested; and pick them up if they don’t show up in court. I do not believe the latter will be the case for Mr. Cage.”

Interesting hook up right there, I gotta admit.  On top of everything, Cage still has a $14 Million tax bill to pay, and the security video from the tattoo shop was released by TMZ, showing Cage almost carried by his two friends.
