What a shame. He's a talented actor but he's always seemed a bit edgey. The choices he makes in his private life often seem weird and/or bizarre, like marrying Lisa Marie Presley because he idolized her Dad.....!

I do hope he manages to extricate himself out of whatever downward spiral he's fallen into and find his equilibrium again. I never much cared for the sensationalized action movies he did, but City Of Angels remains a lyrical, sensitive, and subtle portrayal enjoyed by many.

I wish him the best.

This is the kind of guy Rep. Ryan wants to give an extra 10% in tax cuts to at the expense of granny's Medicare. Pretty pathetic!

I read somewhere what his true name was and it don't recall it being Coppola, but I could be wrong. All in all, dispite his financial woes, and who has had them, he seems like a decent guy and this is a shame this is happening to him now. Think it could be a hokes maybe! Mug shot doesn't seem authentic.

I'll retract my previous statement, he is a Coppola and from looking at his background seems he has had this type of problem before, being arrested for disorderly conduct and fighting. Well, another so-called 'actor' with bad manners and uncontrollable temper! Hollywood is going to Hell! True they get paid to do very little, not much talent and all those homes and money. It's an outrage! Most of these people are brainless with absolute no talent what so ever....how dey do dat? Discusting!!! Let them pay for all the poor people struggling these days as community service!! Only in this country does that happen.

Me thinks that this is an attempt to gain the publicity that Charlie Sheen has gotten recently. Think about it: he taunted the police to arrest him... Get it? Also, the "mug shot" doesn't really look like someone who is out-of-their-mind drunk. It looks like someone trying to look drunk, but badly done. And the abuse charge- another Sheen move. If he continues with the Sheen playbook, we will know for sure. However, nobody likes a copycat, do they? It's sort of sad and demeaning. Come on Nic, just be a good actor. You don't need this side gig.
