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.

Oh really? They had a bit of an argument. She is not pressing charges. How many of you people have had an argument with someone?? How many haven't! So freaking what if he and/or she had some drinks? It's nobody's business. They were not driving, she did not get hurt, the cops were overreacting as usual (nothing like a bored cop) and just wanted to get a perc for arresting a celebrity. Not that it matters, they all have a big ego trip going on anyway........no one is any good unless they work for the police dept.

If we did not pay any attention to these idiots, maybe they would all just go away. As long as there are bored and tired people who patronize their movies and TV shows, Hollyweird will continue to spew out the mediocre garbage they have been shoveling to us for the past several years. So, if you stop watching stupid "entertainment" like the kardashians, jersey snore, and these insulting "reality" shows, and stop paying good money to go to the theater to see this third-rate, second-hand trash, the idiots will start doing some real work at REAL entertainment with some quality. You get what you pay for.

That's the problem with actors and singers getting paid millions of dollars for not doing much except to indulge themselves and dramatically overacting. They begin to think they are special and above the law. He wanted to be arrested, he got arrested. Hurray for the cops.

First Charlie Sheen. Now Nicholas Cage. Seems the issues related to guilt about making so much money at something they're so bad at is reaching epidemic proportions.

Maybe there is something OUTSIDE of the video that we are not seeing. There is a lot of speculation.

The people around them made a big deal out of nothing, is what that situation seems like & Nic was just sick of the ignorance & stupidity of it all & he did not think the cops would "just take him to jail" for being billigerant. I hope he knows to avoid that area & those people in the future, ....& that the Police will take you to jail if you keep asking them too, they can be @$$h@l@$ just like everyone else. But, he should never be put into the ranks of Sheen. Sheen is a trainwreck!

Your kidding me! An argument, a plain ole hubby and wife argument. YOU clowns try to make it out to be a wife beating or worse. She was arguing as much as him. Why not say Wife starts argument. I didn't see any shoving, hitting, poking, pushing, pulling or anything you clowns like to start something with. Your a waste of time. Go report on someone thats really doing something offensive. Maybe a Senator or Mayor. Floow them around awhile
