Nic Cage's Son Hospitalized for Mental Evaluation

6/7/2011 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nic Cage's son, Weston Cage, has been taken to the hospital by ambulance for a mental evaluation and possible 5150 psychiatric hold, sources tell TMZ.

Sources tell TMZ ... Weston was at The Farmer's Kitchen in Hollywood at around 4:00 today, when his trainer told him he couldn't eat something on the menu.  For some reason, we're told Weston went off and started pushing the trainer in a violent way, at one point trying to roundhouse the trainer.

The trainer took Weston down, and someone else tried calming Nic's son down, to no avail.  Weston got up and continued freaking out.

Cops showed up and told Weston if he didn't get on the ground they would tase him.  Weston then complied.  Cops put Weston in handcuffs but they were so worried he was unstable they strapped him to a gurney. 

It's unclear if Weston was under the influence of drugs or alcohol but people who work at the restaurant say he appeared to be under the influence of something.

Weston was taken to a local hospital where he is being evaluated.

One source says Weston got into a nuclear argument with his new wife, Nikki, this morning and she stormed out of their house.

UPDATE:  Sources close to the Cage family tell TMZ Nic has arrived at the hospital.  We're told Nic has cleared his schedule and plans to stay in town as long as Weston needs him to be here.

Totally thought this was a post on Nick Hogan, he sure does look like him, but a darker version.
So weird.

His "trainer"?

He's a musician and a reluctant wannabe actor...is he now going to be a "cage fighter"...pardon the pun : )

So what exactly made them think he was nuts? Sounds to me like low blood sugar or he was just plain ole hungry.

Poster above, a roundhouse punch is wild swinging of arms. Look it up.

The wedding should have been a clue that Weston is a mental case.

MAYBE HE JUST WANTED TO EAT
without someone always nagging at him on what
not to eat..people bugging him all the time
because he is a little chubby.

Sounds more like a spoiled brat of arrogance and privilege rather than a 5150.

People: Stop making excuses for this spoiled brat! Personal trainer, the indulgent wedding, living off of his dad while he claims to be a musician..... It all adds up to being a failure as a parent, resulting in a child who is a complete dud.

Now he thinks he can strangle someone in public if he doesn't get his way. Glad Nic is taking the time to mange this scary creature that he spawned because he's fully responsible for his behavior.
I would smack that Goth makeup off his face, give him a buzz cut and enlist him in the marines.
