In one of the most unconventional mug shots we've ever seen, an unshaven Nic Cage poses with his eyes closed in a New Orleans police station early Saturday morning after being arrested for domestic abuse.

The actor was apparently picked up after a cabbie witnessed him pushing his wife, Alice Kim, in the Big Easy this morning, according to TMZ.

Police initially told the actor to take his wife home, but arrested Cage after he repeatedly taunted the police to take him in.

Nicolas is charged one count of domestic abuse and one count of disturbing the peace. Alice is apparently denying any physical contact and does not want him charged.
