"However, she is still on an immigration hold until tomorrow, I spoke to her today and my heart is going out to my child.

Weston told reporters, "Don't get married" when leaving jail, E! Online reports.
Cage also wrote on his wife's Facebook wall, "I don't have to bail her out. Most victims of such brutality would keep someone like your sister in jail. But I love her more than anyone and I'm going to bail her out. Don't trigger me with an attitude right now. My heart is broken and I am without MY WIFE BECAUSE OF ALCOHOL. BECAUSE OF A STUPID FERMENTED BEVERAGE."
