Nicolas Cage detained in New Orleans after allegations of domestic violence
New York: Actor Nicolas Cage was taken into custody after allegations of domestic violence in New Orleans.
A New Orleans police official said the 47-year-old was drunk and disturbing the peace after an argument with wife, Alice Kim, reports people.com.
"Cage and his wife were standing in front of a residence that he insisted was the property the couple was renting. She disagreed, and Cage grabbed her by the upper arm and pulled her to what he believed was the correct address. There were no visible signs of injury on his wife`s arm," the police said in a statement.
"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. The officers subsequently took Cage to Central Lock-up."
An inmate, who was released shortly after the actor, Saturday told People magazine: "He was drunk. He wasn`t in a cell, he was behind the counter with all the other officers."
