Nicolas Cage Sprung from New Orleans Jail Thanks to Dog the Bounty Hunter

In New Orleans, reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter bailed out an Oscar winner by posting a bond of $11,000 after Nicolas Cage’s arrest.

Cage ended up behind bars Saturday for public drunkenness, disturbing the peace and domestic violence. The actor was allegedly having a dispute with third wife Alice Kim at the time of his arrest, and sources say the couple were outdoors disagreeing over which rental property entrance was theirs.

In a statement, E! quotes the bounty hunter (a.k.a. Duane Chapman): “Media from around the world have been requesting interviews with me today after reports surfaced about my posting a bond for actor Nicolas Cage in New Orleans….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. I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show.”
He added, “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. I do not believe the latter will be the case for Mr. Cage.”

Dog’s wife, Beth Chapman, tweeted on Saturday: “My guy just walked out of the jail,” she said. “Damn new Orleans 8 hours holy cow that’s a lot of time to Process one guy.” Earlier, she posted a tweet hinting about the Chapmans’ famous client: “Up and down all night working on a bond in New Orleans good thing I like You dude!”
