Nic Cage -- Arguing with Wife in Tattoo Shop Video

4/18/2011 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained surveillance video taken inside a tattoo shop just before Nic Cage was arrested -- where he can clearly be seen carrying some sort of drink as he argues with his wife and others.

Nicolas Cage Video
As TMZ first reported, Cage went to the tattoo shop on the night he was arrested ... and, according to witnesses, told shop employees he didn't know where he lived. According to police, that was the topic he and his wife were arguing over when he allegedly grabbed her.

In the surveillance video, Cage can be seen with arms around two friends -- and holding a clear plastic cup -- as he enters the shop. Cage would walk out and back in and again ... and that's when he can be seen arguing with his wife and friends. His wife can be seen motioning to herself throughout the video -- as if to say, "Listen to me" or "Come with me."

Eventually Nic acquiesced and left the shop ... only to later be arrested on charges of domestic violence and disturbing the peace.

I'm confused. I saw her smiling and I didn't see Nicholas touch her except to take her hand. I saw the other men around these two put their hands on her more then anything. My question is, who called the cops about this??? Geesh really?? This is not abuse. And Nicholas' wife said there was no abuse. Clearly from this tape, she's telling the truth. Get a grip. There is real abuse going around without arresting someone for an argument then calling it abuse!

It's pretty clear that alcohol wasn't involved. We all know Nic is a mean agressive disagreeable type with no brains or manners that can hardly stand up and can't remember where he lives. Having it on video confirms it.

Yo, Nic, get yourself together and get out of New Orleans. You can't handle or afford it these days. We don't want to see another Randy Quaid looney hatch or another Charlie Sheen type carnival to bore the hell out of all of us.

Just another useless, dumb actor who can't handle his alcohol, can't manage his money or his women, and can't remember his own friggin' address. Not really much of a man, by my definition.

You people are crazy, seems to be like a bunch of 'leeches' over Nicolas. The people coming in and when they found out who he is they 'swarmed' all over him as well. I don't see him that drunk, he wasn't staggering all over the place when he left. He was walking normal. And his wife looked out for him, you see her picking up his jacket after he puts it down. Nothing to report here....

This clearly isn't the video that shows abuse. Just Nic Cage appearing a bit intoxicated and maybe wanting a tattoo? Seems this is all overblown.

Good thing Alice was there, or he could have ended up with some hooker's name inked on his butt.

I think Dog the Bounty Hunter bailed out Nicholas Cage to try to drown out the real story he is involved in, His crew and a Maui police officer are in the hot seat for violating a reporters first amendment rights and assaulting him, this is the real story.
