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.

Publicity stunt. He's in a black metal band, and he needs "street cred"

"Look at me! I'm unstable and violent. I'm a madman! Buy my records!"

I think this chap is suffering a mental illness probably bought on by steriod use. Thank god he's been stopped in time, but I think Nic made a massive mistake using his trainer to track him down instead of relying on police. Sadly his trainer just made it worse and engaged in physical contact with him, which is the worst thing anyone can do to anyone having a steroid induced mental meltdown.

If Nic loves his son so much, he should have gone after him himself! Oh no, a Hollywood big bod wouldn't be seen out in public, even for his own son would he. Such a shame, I hope Weston is placed under the care of his mother, and his access to the hollywood scene, including wrestling, where steriods are rife, is restricted until he is well enough to deal with it.
