Nicolas Cage was arrested early Saturday in New Orleans after what police described as a drunken quarrel with his wife on a French Quarter street over the address of their rental home. The actor apparently thought the house they were standing in front of was theirs, his wife Alice insisted it was not. At that point, police said, Cage grabbed her arm and started hitting cars – then yelled at the cop who tried to stop him. Charged with domestic abuse battery, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness, the Oscar winner was released later that day, reports AP.
