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."

Dog knows about people like nic Cage. His brother is like that I think. I may be wrong, but I know that Dog knows about abusive men.

I hope he jumps bail because that would be a very special episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter.

And before anybody gets too hopped up on the domestic abuse issue on this one, it looks like they really were just having an argument because if the cops repeatedly told them just to go home, clearly there was no abuse going on. If you ever seen COPS (or dealt with them) you know how quick they are to run someone in if they think there's even the slightest evidence of violence. Basically what you've got here is disturbing the peace and after repeatedly getting mouthy with the officers they decided to just push it all the way and throw the book at him. He'll never have to answer to the trumped up domestic abuse charge.

How long do we have to wait for an apology? It's 2011 not 1987, if you sneeze the world knows about it instantly. Acknowledge the fact that you made a headline, a negative one and apologize for disrupting the normal flow of news. Celebrities can't lay low and hope it all goes away, that doesn't work anymore this is the information age.

If you're sitll hungover then see a doctor, but don't hide from bad press, Own it. Everyone else does owns up to their faults, don't be the 8 year old with a bad report card. Kobe made a statement almost immediately. Send the cop and thank you letter, taxi driver as well and give them both swag from some movies and don't go on tv.

How broke it Nick? He didn't have $11K to make bond? Why did he need a bondsman? And as I understand Dog isn't a bondsman anyway. Apparently, legally, he was just someone with the bond money.

Sad with talent ya got temper. His spending habit is a problem,and his movie ain't doing so well Put'em together not a good combo.Very sad.. Hey human he is,and hope he can realize that sometimes the acting thing cannot sustain you you you spend above your mean. That goes with other people who make a whole lot less. He needs to go then to his relatives to get some advice,and it wouldn't hurt to go to anger management.A lot of people would have liked the break that he and others got,and would like to not have him flush it down the toilet..

There is something disgusting about a family that will bail out a celebrity over not just one kid, but 2... remember long lost tucker chapman? Apparently when beth and the dog preach about how everyone deserves second chances, that only applies to people who can help them get the show ratings up.
