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.

Elizabeth H: "Yes I'm sure there were MANY, MANY things on his schedule that Nic had to clear. Be serious!!"

Ahahaha! That was the thought that crossed my mind, too! Dude had such potential when he was younger... really turned into a has-been early on with his horrible movie choices and what's become his dreadful one-dimensional monotone acting style. He makes Keanu Reeves seem positively Shakespearean.

I'm sad to say that I'm not shocked at the ignorant comments some of you are posting. I really think many of you should get educated on mental illness before you start posting. Some of these comments just illustrate how ignorant some people are and how you revel in that ignorance.
