NICOLAS CAGE was arrested Saturday morning in New Orleans, after a public altercation with his wife, ALICE KIM.
It all went down at about 6:30 in the morning, in the French Quarter. Police say Nic and Alice were standing in front of a residence that he insisted was their rented apartment. She disagreed.
The police report states, quote, “Cage grabbed her by the upper arm and pulled her to what he believed was the correct address. There were no visible signs of injury on his wife’s arm.
“The actor then began striking vehicles and later attempted to get into a taxi. At that point, an officer who had been flagged down by onlookers drove up on the couple, immediately observed that Cage was heavily intoxicated and ordered him out of the cab, which prompted Cage to start yelling.
“The officers subsequently took Cage to Central Lock-up.”
TMZ says Cage actually DARED the cops to bust him, saying, quote, “Why don’t you just arrest me?”
