The arrest of Nicolas Cage:
The actor-director-producer won a "Best Actor" Academy Award for 1995's "Leaving Las Vegas"…
…in which he portrayed an alcoholic Hollywood writer.
Known professionally as Nicolas Cage, he's also well-remembered for his roles in "Moonstruck", "Leaving Las Vegas", and "Honeymoon in Vegas."
Born Nicolas Kim Coppola, he's a California native and nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola and actress Talia Shire, both famous for their work in "The Godfather" films. Shire's also known for the role of Adrian in the "Rocky" series.
His cousins are Talia's son, actor Jason Schwartzman…
…and actress Sophia Coppola.
Cage's second marriage was to the daughter of The King, Lisa Marie, daughter of Elvis Presley.
They married in August 2002 and filed for divorce a few months later in November.
In July, 2009, The Internal Revenue Service went after Cage in connection with a federal tax lien against some Louisiana property that Nic owned. Cage also faced another IRS lien for over $350,000 in unpaid taxes from 2002 to 2004.
Cage sued his business manager Samuel Levin for twenty million dollars for negligence and fraud, saying he had failed to pay the taxes and had exposed Nic to risky real estate ventures. Levin counter-sued, saying he warned Cage he was living beyond his means - even though he earned an estimated forty million dollars in 2009, according to Forbes magazine. Cages also been sued for unpaid, multi-million dollar loans.
And Cage's big visit to the police blotter came in New Orleans on April 5, 2011, when he was arrested in the French Quarter on suspicion of domestic abuse battery, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness. A police officer was asked to intercede by onlookers who say he grabbed his wife Alice Kim's upper arm.
He was held until he could post $11,000 bail and the charges were dropped exactly one month later, on May 5th.
