Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife Beth Chapman posted Nicolas Cage's $11,000 bail on Saturday morning and the reality star's wife took to Twitter to drum up business for the couple's Bail Bond company.

Cage was arrested on Saturday morning in New Orleans on charges of domestic violence and disturbing the peace after an alleged argument with his wife Alice Kim.

"My guy just walked out of the jail damn new Orleans 8 hours holy cow that's a lot of time to process one guy," Chapman Tweeted. "Yes we write nation wide Bail Bonds we can get anyone out in any state right from right here in Hawaii."

Chapman and her husband Duane "Dog" Chapman star in the A & E reality series "Dog the Bounty Hunter," which follows Dog as a professional bounty hunter at Da Kine Bail Bonds in Hawaii.

"I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show," Chapman said in a statement to E! News. "This is what I do for a living. There are two sides of my job: I release my clients after they have been arrested; and pick them up if they don't show up in court. I do not believe the latter will be the case for Mr. Cage."

Cage was released from the Orleans Parrish Jail in New Orleans around 2:20 p.m. ET on Saturday, following an arrest for domestic abuse, OnTheRedCarpet.com has confirmed.

The 47-year-old actor was taken into custody around 11:30 p.m. on Friday, according to a statement from New Orleans Police spokesman Garry Flot. According to the statement, Cage was found arguing with his wife Alice Kim outside in the city's French Quarter.

Official records state that the actor was arrested for one count of domestic abuse battery and one count of disturbing the peace.

Cage has been married to Kim, who is his third wife, for almost seven years. They have one son together, 5 year old Kal-El, who was named after Superman's birth name.

Cage's most recent movies, "Season of the Witch" and "Drive Angry 3D" flopped at the box office. Cage won a Best Actor Oscar for his role in the 1995 movie, "Leaving Las Vegas."

Cage will make a court appearance on May 31. The actor's rep had no immediate comment on the report.
