Nicolas Cage Bailed Out By Dog The Bounty Hunter
Whaaaaa? Yeah, you read it right. Duane, Dog The Bounty Hunter, Chapman posted the $11,000 bond to get Nicolas Cage out of the clink in New Orleans after Nic was arrested for domestic abuse and disturbing the peace Saturday night in the French Quarter.
In a statement to E! News Dog said, “I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage and will not be granting any interviews about my client as I wish to respect his privacy. I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show. This is what I do for a living. There are two sides of my job: I release my clients after they have been arrested; and pick them up if they don’t show up in court. I do not believe the latter will be the case for Mr. Cage.”[pullquote quote="I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage..." credit="Dog The Bounty Hunter to E! News"]
Cage is filming in the area. A spokesperson for the NOPD had this to say, “Cage and his wife were standing in front of a residence that he insisted was the property the couple was renting. She disagreed, and Cage grabbed her by the upper arm and pulled her to what he believed was the correct address. There were no visible signs of injury on his wife’s arm,” the NOPD said in a statement.
“The actor then began striking vehicles and later attempted to get into a taxi. At that point, an officer who had been flagged down by onlookers drove up on the couple, immediately observed that Cage was heavily intoxicated and ordered him out of the cab, which prompted Cage to start yelling. The officers subsequently took Cage to Central Lock-up.”
Cage is scheduled to appear in court on May 31.
I have two questions about this story. Was it the wrong house? And did Dog just happen to be in town?
