Well here’s a twist we weren’t expecting.
It wasn’t friends or family who posted the $11,000 bond for Nicolas Cage on Saturday (Apr. 16), it was a fan. But not just any fan — Reality star Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman came to the actor’s rescue.
]]>statement to E! News.
“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. 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.”
Cage was arrested in New Orleans on charges domestic abuse and
disturbing the peace after arguing with his wife and subsequently daring
the cops to arrest him. As one does.
Apparently it wasn’t an easy process to get Cage out of the pokey.
Chapman’s wife Beth tweeted on Saturday, “My guy
just walked out of the jail damn new Orleans 8 hours holy cow that’s a
lot of time toProcess one guy.”
Maybe he was busy daring them to keep him in jail?
