Nicholas Caged – Actor arrested in New Orleans after drunken row

Vastly overrated actor Nicolas Cage was arrested in New Orleans’ French Quarter at the weekend after a drinking binge that led to a public fracas with this wife. The argument was over a house they were stood outside with Cage seemingly confused over which property the couple were renting.

According to the police report Cage and his wife were stood outside an apartment which the one-trick-pony actor believed the couple to be renting but when his spouse insisted otherwise he grabbed her arms and got all action-hero on her.

He then started to punch cars, displaying classic bully tendencies by attacking something which can’t hit back, clearly having no other vent for the rage in the cage; and when officers turned up he tried to escape in a taxi. One officer, noticing that Nick was off his trolley, ordered him out of the cab but Cage simply started yelling abuse at him.

The officers arrested him and have since charged him with domestic abuse battery, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness. He was released on $11,000 bond Saturday night which was reportedly posted by Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Cage’s representatives could not be reached over the weekend.

Nicholas Cage is no stranger to New Orleans, in fact he has filmed several bad movies there and has in the past owned property in the city.

As one of Hollywood’s highest paid actors Cage sure has dropped himself in it with a string of bad decisions throughout his life. It all started going wrong after ‘Raising Arizona’, a role in which he shone, probably because he got to play himself. A string of overrated films shot the actor to celestial status and with it his ego soared, thinking of himself as untouchable.

[adsense]A slew of terrible films ensued, including Face Off in which he starred opposite Scientology proponent and balding fat man, John Travolta, and the flimsy comic book adaptation of Ghost Rider which could only have improved if they’d dropped the cgi and instead flayed and ignited Cage’s head.

Financial woe followed and his millions of dollars in movie income soon became millions of dollars in tax debt. He pinned his financial ruin on his former business manager who he fired in October 2009 and has subsequently sued for $20m.

In 1995 Nicholas Cage won an Academy Award for his performance in ‘Leaving Las Vegas’ and a sequel, Leaving New Orleans might prove to be even more popular.

  1. This review is very detail orientated. Very accurate.
    He has become a tragedy. He directed a movie that was so offensive, I ended up walking out of a screening of it.

    Nick needs to go on a national treasure of his own.
    Hopefully he will find reality and get a clue.

  2. Nick got “NICKED”!!!
    I wonder if he was vialted with the abused police officer’s
    night stick!!!. Would be a great addition to his already poorly directed of the movie filmed in New Orleans entitled, Sonny.

    Gone in 60 Seconds is his shelf life for sucess.
    City of Angels called and is asking for Nick not to Jump.
    The Sorcerer’s Apprentice said there is no magic.
    CON AIR said that Nick’s Seat is ready.

  3. Finally someone that really understands Nick Cage. Although you forget the part about him being the nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola which presumably is the only reason he would have ever gotten work as an actor.

  4. There are often lists of the great living male movie stars: De Niro, Nicholson and Pacino, usually. How often do you see the name of Nicolas Cage? He should always be up there. He’s daring and fearless in his choice of roles, and unafraid to crawl out on a limb, saw it off and remain suspended in air. No one else can project inner trembling so effectively…. He always seems so earnest. However improbable his character, he never winks at the audience. He is committed to the character with every atom and plays him as if he were him.

  5. this article is the most ignorant thing I have read in the past week which says a lot beside the spelling and grammatical errors you went overboard with the just b/c he got a little drunk and disorderly in public he is a bad actor or person… and my reply is how would you even know… how reporting just facts next time since your opinion is so embarrassing!

  6. Did a 10-year old write this article?? This is grammar, punctuation, and phrasing on a fifth-grade level. It’s almost as bad as the people leaving most comments on pages all over the Web.

  7. This writer is terrible. He or she spelled more words wrong then right.and hates Nick Cage even before this happened.I agree he did a couple bad movies, but most were pretty good. I don’t think he is over-rated. There has been way more actors that have done some bad movies. You should find another job. You are not good at this . Maybe you should become an actor and try it, lol.

  8. Yeah, Nick Cage, the one trick pony. The writer of this article should stick to tabloid journalism and TMZ style bullshit. Yeah, Cage totally fucked up, but the writer of this article is so blatantly jealous of his celebrity. I’d like him/her to give an example of ANYTHING they’ve done that holds a candle to his accomplishments. I’m waiting dickhead.

  9. Why is it that the people who pick up on grammatical mistakes always have bad grammar themselves?

    While I’m asking questions, why do people assume that if someone has something bad to say about a celebrity it’s because they’re jealous?

    I’m waiting dickheads.
