Nicolas Cage's lawyer has said 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.

But his lawyer said that the Orleans Parish district attorney's office refused the charges and no prosecution would occur.

A district attorney spokesman said prosecutors determined "the conduct did not amount to criminal conduct."

Cage had been free on 11,000 US dollar bond.
