According to TMZ, the incident occurred on the night of his drunken arrest, April 15. Completely drunk, the actor was violently arguing with his wife while they were in the car with their 5-year-old son.
When they arrived at their home, his wife Alice claims, “Mr Cage fell while holding their son. The fall caused the 5 year old to suffer a minor abrasion to his left knee.”
However, this comes in contradiction to what a witness told cops: “Mr. Cage pull the male child to the ground by his hand.”
The report states that, “A child abuse detective was notified.” The police wanted to interview Cage’s son but Alice opposed to it.
The boy was hospitalized for his knee injury. His dad, meanwhile, was freed after several hours in jail.
Cage was eventually arrested for domestic abuse and disturbing the peace. The actor will answer for his acts of violence to justice.
