Nic Cage -- At His Son's Side in Ambulance

6/8/2011 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nic Cage jumped to his son Weston's aide yesterday moments after the 20-year-old got into an insane brawl with his trainer ... causing cops to have him taken to a local hospital for mental evaluation.

As we first reported, after cops arrived at the Hollywood restaurant where Weston went off, they strapped him to a gurney and placed him in an ambulance, fearing he was unstable.

In the photo, you see Weston in the ambulance, wearing his unmistakable Thor-themed wedding ring.

I really don't understand why you guys have to post stuff like this. It happens in a lot of families , it's not cool to post the ambulance pics guys, it's just not. I can get running the story because it was pretty intense and in a public place... Ambulance pics though? Tacky

Most everything about TMZ is tacky. Therefore, bye-bye TMZ....

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this family. If he had a normal father, this could have been prevented.

"What's his impairment?"

Great minds thing alike Susan. Was going to say the same thing myself about the apple not falling far from the tree. This is one tree that when shaken has nothing but nuts in it

Are you sure TMZ? Because the The Farmer's Kitchen's hours of operation state that they are closed on Mondays.

didn't he get kicked out of a band recently, because he was a 'don't you know who my dad is' kind of guy?

is this all one big acting job in order to arner sympathy and support for his son and keep him of jail?

don't feel good about being suspicious
but in Hollywood, nothing is as it seems
and rich celebs are huge enablers of their kids a lot of times

Nick is a good father, he was also a good son when he father was sick. The best thing about hospitals for celebrities is that they get to spend quality time together. As awful as that sounds, it's a moment of peace away from camera clicks that they will both cherish as a silver-lining in all this mess.

It is unlikely that Cage jumped to his son's aide. I think you meant aid.
