Dog the Bounty Hunter Bail Nicolas Cage Out
This story sounds like it's a phony, but it apparently really did happen over the weekend. Nicholas Cage got into an argument with his wife on a public street and ended up getting arrested for domestic violence and disturbing the peace. Then the story gets weirder when TMZ says Dog the Bounty Hunter ponied up the $11-thousand dollar bond to get Cage out of jail. Dog said later, "I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage and I 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."
