Dog the Bounty Hunter Bails Nicolas Cage Out of Jail
A&E reality star Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman is known for putting men behind bars -- but on Saturday, he bailed one out.
"I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage and will not be granting any interviews about my client as I wish to respect his privacy," Chapman, 58, told E! News. "I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show."
Police told Us Weekly that Cage, 47 -- who has a 5-year-old son, Kal-El, with wife Alice Kim -- was arguing with his spouse outside of a rental property when he "grabbed her by the upper arm and pulled her to what he believed was the correct address." The actor then "began striking vehicles and later attempted to get into a taxi," the NOPD added.
When the intoxicated actor was ordered out of the cab by a nearby police officer, he began yelling and causing a scene. The officers subsequently took Cage to Central Lock-Up.
"This is what I do for a living. There are two sides of my job: I release my clients after they have been arrested; and pick them up if they don't show up in court," he explained. "I do not believe the latter will be the case for Mr. Cage."
