Cage in Rage

busted Nicolas Cage celebrity

Subject: Nicolas Cage

Charges: In April 2011, Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage was arrested by New Orleans cops on domestic abuse and disturbing the peace charges. According to police, Cage was arguing with his wife Kim in front of a home, insisting that the house was their rental property. He grabbed her upper arm and dragged her towards the property that he believed they were renting -- there were no visible signs of injury to her 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."

Date: Mugshot taken on April 16, 2011

Verdict: The busted actor was briefly jailed before posting bond (set at $10,000 for the domestic abuse charge and $1000 for the charge of disturbing the peace) to secure his release from the lockup of the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office.
