(Newser) – Nicolas Cage's drunken rant in New Orleans got him arrested—but the drama may not end there. He could face a child abuse investigation, too, reports TMZ. A witness says Cage pulled his 5-year-old son to the ground while arguing with his wife that night, according to a police report obtained by TMZ. Cage's wife, Alice, however, claims the actor simply fell while holding the boy, causing a "minor abrasion" on the child's left knee. A detective was called in to investigate, but Cage's wife wouldn't let police interview the boy. Click here for more.
