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.

who cares    

Is checking into a mental hospital going to be the new rehab tool to keep Hollywood out of jail? I am checking into a mental hospital for my drug problem so i can't be thrown in jail.

....all the sic comments suggesting altern. to what happened are amusement because it is obvious they come from people/kids that don't live any where near LA but seem to think they know what happened just based upon a picture. WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE PICS OF THESE PEOPLE SO THAT WE CAN MAKE JUDGEMENTS BASED UPON YOUR FACE. Would be interesting to see the faces of the "holier then thou"!

I'm disgusted at the amount of punches the trainer did to him and even more disgusted at the amount of people jus*****ching and filming the whole thing! you should be ashamed of yourself! How are you going to feel when its you getting punched up and everyone just films you getting beat up instead of helping karma's a bitch people!! Shame Shame Shame!

One should never take one's trainer to a restaurant! Not only do trainers scream at you about exercising, but they scream at you about every little thing you eat! Who needs that when you're in the mood for a juicy cheeseburger & fries? You have to kick the trainer's behind to get him to shut up, and then you're taken to a mental facility just because you wanted something greasy to eat! And the trainer will probably still bill him for his services! Trainers are monsters!
