NEW ORLEANS >> An attorney for Nicolas Cage says the actor won't face criminal charges stemming from his April 16 arrest in New Orleans.

New Orleans police say Cage was arrested in the French Quarter after he grabbed his wife's arm and pounded on cars in a drunken argument about whether a nearby house was the one they were renting. He was booked with domestic abuse, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness.

Attorney Harry Rosenberg said Friday that the Orleans Parish district attorney's office refused the charges and no prosecution would occur.

"We are pleased that the process led to the correct result, despite the inaccurate media reports, and that Nick has been cleared and all charges have been dropped," Rosenberg said.

District attorney spokesman Christopher Bowman says prosecutors determined "the conduct did not amount to criminal conduct."

Cage had been free on $11,000 bond put up by Hawaii-based bail bondsman Duane Chapman, known as "Dog the Bounty Hunter" to reality TV fans.
