Actor Nicolas Cage was arrested early this morning in New Orleans after breaking out in a loud argument with his wife.
Sources close to the actor say he was “very drunk” and was screaming at his wife Alice on the streets when a cab driver realized the argument was taking place and phoned police to report the domestic squabble, the cabbie also told police that Cage pushed Alice.
When police arrived on the scene Cage taunted them, stating:
“Why don’t you just arrest me?”
When police told Cage to just go home, he taunted them again with the same words and was then charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace.
According to reports, Cage’s wife in not a complaining witness and will not press charges as she says the cabbie’s claim of physical contact is false.
