Nicholas Cage fought the law and the law won

hollywoodnews.com: Bail has been set at $11,000 for Nicholas Cage, who was arrested in New Orleans this morning following a skirmish with his wife. Police records indicate that Cage was arrested on counts of domestic abuse and disturbing the peace. Though the actor’s wife and the target of the abuse, Alice, had the opportunity to press charges, she did not. Cage was reportedly released after posting bail this afternoon.
The altercation occurred while Cage was in town to shoot a new movie, “Medallion”. Witnesses including a taxi driver and other bystanders saw Cage push his wife during a shouting match between the two. When police arrived on the scene, a reportedly drunken Cage not only refused to quiet down–he dared police to arrest him. The arrest marked the latest in a series of legal and criminal troubles in which Cage fought the law and the law won.
