As TMZ first reported, Cage was arrested this morning in New Orleans on charges of domestic violence and disturbing the peace after an alleged argument with his wife Alice.

Sources tell TMZ they were the ones who helped get Nic out of jail -- he was being held on $11,000 bond.

Beth alluded to the bail out, posting on her Twitter, "My guy just walked out of the jail damn new Orleans 8 hours holy cow that's a lot of time to Process one guy."

Interesting that they bailed Nicolas Cage out of jail after his arrest for domestic violence, yet they let Dog's daughter sit in jail a few weeks ago for the same charge...hhhhmmm...

*** I love you, Dawg! Love Nic Cage too. He needs someone who understands the type of psyche that Nic Cage has. Also, someone who can live an average lifestyle. Good luck, Nic! ***

Maybe he saw one of his recent movies and went crazy at how crappy his acting has been lately.

It was nice of Dog to do that for Nick. Just everybody knows Nick is under a lot of stress because of his financial problems.

He said his ex manager mismanaged his money down through the years and he has nothing to show for all his years of working but bills and liens. YIKES.

I can understand a bit how he must feel but hurting the wife and getting drunk is not the answer. He's a great actor and I do hope things will turn around for him shortly.

Since Nic was sloppy drunk when arrested at 6 a.m., he probably needed to sober up & sleep before they would release him.

Why didn't Cage's wife, or anyone in his family, post bail? And why would Beth Chapman care if he gets out?
