|

Well this isn’t great news. People reports that Nicolas Cage may face child abuse charges following his arrest in New Orleans after an alleged fight with his wife. Cage was reportedly arguing with his wife Alice after a night of drinking and while he was holding their son Kal-El, 5, he dropped the boy. Kal-El scraped his knee in the fall and child abuse detectives were called, although they didn’t open an investigation at that time, there’s a possibility that police may pursue it now.

The police report states “When the couple arrived at their residence … she parked the vehicle and Mr. Cage retrieved their son. The arguing continued, and at some point, Mr. Cage fell while holding their son. The fall caused the five (5) year old child to suffer a minor abrasion [on] his left knee.” Before his arrest, Cage was allegedly “belligerent” and “heavily intoxicated” and had been yelling that his wife was trying to kill him.
