Clearly that is not a mugshot of Nick. There are no numbers below his picture and the angle of the photo is all wrong showing pipes on the ceiling-this was taken anywhere but a precint.

Nic Cage is one of the better actors he does some good work. He just what you might say screwed up. None of us where there, so we do not know what the argument was about. He only pushed his wife according to the article.. Not a big deal! ETOH and arguments do not mix.

If he pushed her, she probably was all up in his face and Nic got sick of it. Better than a punch in the kisser.

it isn't easy to get arrested in n.o.french q.,you have to curse or act out. they do know how to party in the french quarter,and they make their livings on people who do the same.getting drunk and fighting aren't partying or cool.

Yup, he's married to an Asian woman (Korean I believe)... been through the same thing. I think it's a common thing with mixed couples honestly because foreign women whose first language is not English throw the most terrible insults around like they are just saying "jerk", but in reality the insult they use are SO MUCH MORE HURTFUL that it literally drives American men to the point where they become physical. Like Nic, I too lost my cool and grabbed my wife, never hit, never beat or anything like that, but because I was angry, and even touched her, it was considered domestic assault. Hopefully Nic's Judge is as understanding as mine was and gives his wife a reprimand for not understanding how hurtful she was to Nic. (I'm hypothesising here what really happened based on my experience) :) Good Luck Nic! I feel your pain dude!

Pretty clear what happened here. Wife pushed his buttons wittingly, he caved and shoved her, taxi driver over-reacted without any information and called cops. Nic wanted to go to jail to get away from being further subjected to his wife arguing and baiting him. After the fact, she does not want to press charges and denies abuse because she knew she was not in danger and she now shares responsibility for elevating/frustrating him to that level. Lose her, Nic, and move on. You do not need the drama.

Don't agree with Sherylynne about losing your wife Nic! I think that this experience you will find is going to be an eye opener for your wife. It was for mine. She was crying her eyes out the next morning when she saw me brought into the court for the hearing. Since that day, (over 3 years ago) she has never pushed me as hard and as hurtful as she did that time. Sometimes it takes a shock to their system to realize what can happen.
