Nicolas Cage arrested for 'drunken' New Orleans row

Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage has been arrested after an alleged drunken argument with his wife in New Orleans.
Mr Cage has been charged with domestic abuse, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness.
He and his wife Alice Kim were arguing outside a house in the French Quarter that the 47-year-old star said they were renting, a police statement says.
Ms Kim said it was not theirs and the Oscar winner grabbed her arm, and started hitting cars, it adds.
He then shouted at a police officer who had seen his behaviour.
Mr Cage is being held in the Orleans Parish Prison before an initial court appearance later on Saturday, police say.
Mr Cage won the 1995 Best Actor Award for Leaving Las Vegas, in which he played an alcoholic with a death wish.
An agent for Mr Cage has not commented on the arrest.
Reports say the actor once owned a house in New Orleans and has previously shot films in the city
