Nicolas Cage received the help of an unlikely ally after being arrested in New Orleans, according to a People magazine online article.
Reality star Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman — aka Dog the Bounty Hunter — posted the actor’s $11,000 bond after he was charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace Saturday in the French Quarter.
“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,” Chapman, 58, told E! News in a statement.
“I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show,” the statement continued. “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, 47, is scheduled to appear in court May 31.
