Judge Wants Damon's Baby Mama in Cuffs

Damon Dash still hasn't seen his son for weeks -- even after a court edict -- and now a judge is going to haul the boy's mama back in cuffs if that's what it takes.

We've learned the judge in the Dash custody battle finally lost her patience and issued a bench warrant yesterday. Linda Williams is still defying the judge's order to return Damon II, whom she picked up weeks ago for a weekend visit and hasn't returned. The whereabouts of the child are unknown.

Our spies spotted Damon outside a Midtown hotel "pacing on the phone" for 45 minutes yesterday as the court drama went down.
