It does seem a little weird that this quite sensational dropping of a small child should have been missed off earlier reports of the incident but now RadarOnline are claiming to have the actual incident report of the altercation between Nicolas Cage and his wife that led to his arrest. It took place in New Orleans last weekend, as we already reported.
However, what we didn’t know at the time and what is now being alleged is that Cage also fell over while holding his five-year-old son, Kal-El. That caused the boy a skinned knee before his mother, Alice, took hold of him.
According to the report, the couple had returned after having dinner with friends. Alice drove them back to their friend’s house to collect their son. A dog walker in the vicinity reported seeing Cage pull the boy by the hand, which resulted in him falling over. That was enough to have the case notified to a child abuse officer for investigation.
No further need for investigation was considered, but a CPS investigation was not ruled out. The injury to the boy’s knee was photographed. However, Alice refused to have Kal-El interviewed and also would not give a statement against Nic Cage. The police report says it took some time for officers to calm down Cage at the scene so he could be read his rights. His manic behaviour and taunts to the police were what led to his arrest.
At the time of the altercation, Alice Cage was also pulled by the upper arm by her husband. She has also refused to testify against him for that, saying simply that she was trying to get her to go with him to what he thought was their correct address. She was not injured.
Meanwhile, Nicolas Cage is trying to put the incident behind him. He has returned to filming new movie, “Medallion”, and attended the wedding of his older son, Weston, this past Sunday.
