4/18/2011 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicholas Cage was arrested in New Orleans early Saturday morning after drunkenly arguing with his wife over where he lived.

Before his arrest Cage, his wife and some friends went to a tattoo parlor and became unruly -- TMZ obtained video of the pair inside the shop where they began the argument over where they lived -- short story, Cage was confused.

Cage and his wife began walking down the street and arguing over the location of their rental house.  A cab driver called cops after he saw them screaming and yelling at each other and allegedly saw Cage grab his wife.

Cops came and told the couple to go home but Cage belligerently taunted them, daring them -- "Why don't you just arrest me?"  Cops then reiterated that he and his wife should just go home.  Cage repeated his dare and he was taken into custody and charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace.

Cage's wife is not a complaining witness.

That was it, that is what this is all about.
I did not see any push, I did not see an arguing going on.

I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions. Most people aren't aware of the almost unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites. The site that has the best deals is ( Http://bit.ly/OnlineAuctionDeals ) and I checked with the Better Business Bureau and was told that it is all legit. How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don't know. I do know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 Loews gift cards for $48. Why would I even think about shopping anyplace else?

Why does it say Arguing with his wife??? Why not arguing with her husband?? I mean where is it a law that a man can not argue with a wife or visa versa?/ They write these stories like woman are victims all the time. Looks like to me she is arguing with him too.

NO BIGGIE.... JUST AN ARGUMENT IN PUBLIC.
THE ONLY ADVICE I WOULD OFFER MR. CAGE IS THIS.... SIR YOU ARE IN YOUR 50'S NOW > TIME TO GROW UP... IF YOU ARE UPSET AT HER, BRING YOUR DISAGREEMENTS BACK TO YOUR >>> HOME WHERE THEY BELONG.

YA KNOW WHAT CHARLIE SHEEN AND NICHOLAS CAGE HAVE IN COMMON?
BOTH RICH, SUCCESSFUL, HOMES,KIDS, YET their personal lives screw them up bad. NO ONE FOR EXAMPLE NICHOLAS HITS WOMEN!
if you need to hit a woman, you have a serious anger issue and need to move out until its over!
Charlie? oh grow up. You're an idiot and put all of those co-workers on a film set, "on hold?"...they have lives too, they have bills too yet a much smaller pay check than you....what a selfish idiot fool.
I hope the studio/company is smart enough to take their own respect, dignity and intelligence and toss Charlie to the wolves. Hire another to replace him and get back to work crew members!

New Orleans Police at their best, AGAIN, over-doing it as usuual. The Cop cannot have his peace disturbed. Supreme Court Decision. Grabbing hold of your wife is not spousal abuse, there must be some injury, apparently there are none and she is not complaining. But then she does not have to if the marks are visible. Apparently the store personnel did not complain only a Taxi Driver. The only charge Cage could be taken into custody for is "Public Intoxication", because even though there is someone with him to provide for his safety he is not allowing them to do so, (His Wife). The Cop made an illegal arrest and is overreacting to the situation,. Who trains the New Orleans Cops? Do they treat everyone like this or just people who are not citizens of New Orleans? (Hint: I was a police officer for 31 years).

Sorry, but I don't see what the fuss is all about. It' looks like a disagreement. So what? I don't see any abuse or violent behavior. If this had been anyone other than a celebrity, we would not be hearing about this. It's a non-story.

TMZ...does not care about the truth..only headlines... they don't care..what the argument was about..just that there was one..and they can..negatively effect someone's life...how often do you see TMZ do a story that actually..made someone look good? Let's digress here for a moment... "MEL" it would have nice if someone would have tried to find out what was on the missing gaps. There once was a time when being a reporter meant something..when nothing went to print or on air without knowing for sure 100% of your facts...now because everyone is just after a buck..no one cares.

OMG !! What is the fuss? Nothing looked abusive to me. This video is nothing. The whole thing is a load of sensationalism and media hype! Cage may have gotten smart with the cops, I guess, and landed himself in jail. The cops probably over-reacted because they knew who Cage was. I guess Cage should learn keep his mouth shut when he needs to, eh?
TMZ, please get some good stories, not this boring yada yada stuff.
