CON DARE …
Let this be a lesson to all, especially Nicolas Cage … don’t ever say to the police, “Why don’t you just arrest me?”
Actor Nicolas Cage was arrested by New Orleans police during the early hours of Saturday morning after he was arguing with his wife in the French Quarter. It appears according to TMZ that Cage also taunted police after they had told him to go home. Instead of heeding the police advice Cage reportedly said to police, “Why don’t you just arrest me?” Guess what, they did.
Call this one, CON DARE
Cage was charged with one count of domestic abuse and one count of disturbing the peace, according to the gossip website TMZ.com.
Cage and Alice Kim, the actor’s third wife, were on a French Quarter street corner fighting when they were spotted by a cab driver. The driver called police and told investigators that the actor shoved Kim, according to TMZ.
Cage has been released from jail on $1,100 bond paid by bounty hunter and reality TV star Duane “Dog” Chapman.
