NEW ORLEANS >> Hawaii bail bondsman Duane Chapman, known as “Dog the Bounty Hunter” to reality TV fans, says he put up the $11,000 bond that got actor Nicolas Cage out of jail Saturday after his arrest in the French Quarter.
Spokeswoman Heather Detert released a statement Tuesday in which Chapman describes himself as a Cage fan but says he was acting on behalf of Cage solely as a client and not for publicity for his cable TV show.
The statement said Chapman won’t grant interviews.
New Orleans police said Cage was arrested 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 on charges of domestic abuse, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness.
