You might have heard that Nicolas Cage was arrested for allegedly getting into a drunken altercation with his wife in New Orleans this weekend. Since I used to work as an investigator in NOLA, I figured I’d look up his court records and share.
This is all public information, which you yourself can find if you go to: Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office Docket Master. I encourage you to visit the site and search his record for yourself. If you’re not so inclined, here are the details.
His entry lists him as a white male born on January 7, 1964. The motion number. is 11562710, the arrest number is 12016967, the item number is D2472511, and the folder number is 2288656. His magistrate number is: 523436 and his section is M2. I can’t remember which judge is in section M2 (and it’s probably changed since I was working there anyway). The arrest date is listed as April 16, 2011.
The records also show that he has 1 charge of violating La. Rev. Stat. § 14:103 (which is disturbing the peace) with a bond of $1,000 set. He also has 1 charge of violating La. Rev. Stat. § 14:35.3 (which is domestic abuse/battery) with a bond set of $10,000 for a total bond of $11,000.
His rule to show cause hearing is scheduled for May 31, 2011 at 3:00PM in M2 and the stay-away order from his wife (I believe these are automatically issued in New Orleans upon arrest for domestic abuse) was waived.
