Nicolas Cage was arrested for allegedly pushing his wife during a drunken row on saturday morning (16.04.11).

Police in New Orleans say witnesses saw the 47-year-old actor – who appeared “heavily intoxicated” – arguing with Alice Kim in the early hours of the morning.

The couple were outside a house in the French Quarter which Nicolas said they were renting but when Alice told him the property was not the one they were staying in the actor reportedly grabbed her arm and started hitting cars before shouting at a police officer.

He was taken into custody after he refused to get out of a taxi when asked to by the officer, who concerned onlookers had alerted, and was charged with domestic abuse, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness.

According to the police report the officer: “immediately observed that Cage was heavily intoxicated” and his wife showed “no visible signs of injury.”

The ‘Drive Angry’ star was released on bail today (17.04.11) for £11,000 by US reality star Duane Chapman (aka Dog The Bounty Hunter), according to

Duane reportedly had his company issue the bond through local firm Blair’s Bail Bonds and his wife Beth wrote about the incident on micro-blogging website twitter.

She tweeted: “My guy just walked out of the jail damn new Orleans 8 hours holy cow that’s a lot of time to process one guy. (sic)”

Alice Kim denies the reports that Cage harmed her in any way but rumours are that rehab may be on the cards…
