Weston Cage

Beat Up In BLOODY Street Fight

6/8/2011 12:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Weston Cage took 13 HARD punches to the face -- in the middle of a Hollywood street -- during a violent confrontation with his personal trainer yesterday ... and it was all caught on tape.

In the footage, obtained by TMZ, Nic Cage's long-haired son is beaten to a bloody pulp in front of the Farmer's Kitchen restaurant in Hollywood ... while several spectators stood by and watched.

The footage begins moments after 20-year-old Cage tried to deliver a roundhouse kick to his trainer after the trainer refused to allow Weston to order a certain item off the menu.

After a brief scuffle, the trainer takes Weston down to the ground ... climbs on top of him ... and rains down with a flurry of barely-contested punches to Weston's face. At one point, Weston tries to punch back -- but the trainer blasts him in the face -- once again taking control of the situation.

The trainer kept Weston pinned down on the concrete until cops arrived -- and as TMZ first reported, Cage was eventually handcuffed, strapped to a gurney, and taken to a nearby hospital to be evaluated.

Weston's father, Nic Cage, raced over to the hospital to be with his son yesterday -- and vows to stay in town as long as Weston needs him to be here.

This man is having a mental breakdown and all his "friend" can do is beat the crap out of him. I am sure the trainer could have got him to the ground and held him there till police arrived and not punched him over 13 times. Nobody stops to help, just taking pictures. Sick, sick ,sick.

You're allowed to have what you want to eat even if you are training. Weston probably fired his ass and then his trainer got mad about not having his paychecks anymore. People need to call the police and try to help the guy! Video taping is good though because that way he can't get away or deny it.

People are just plane and simple ****heads. Poor guy is getting his head pounded in and nobody tries to stop it. The ******** filming should be beat themselves.

In Cali(at least)there is a concept known as "mutual combat". Legal blather to describe a fight that both engaged in willingly. Both have the right to press charges. So either they both ride to jail or both go home. That's a straight fight. Now since they carted "rageing cage" off to the ward; he was obviously acting out when they got there. While fun to watch.... this tape doesn't show initial hit or the cops arrival. Not trying to sound like a wanna-be, but if you throw a roundhouse anything (kick, punch, an actually round house)at someone; you might want to make sure you can connect. Otherwise, this is what happens. Also, here in la-la land there is always the chance o*****ood sam going to jail or getting attacked themselves. Best thing to do is stand back and laugh.

Really now???? I used three words: "of", "a", and "good". It took me a second to figure out why I got censored. Does Tmz realize that they are drawing MORE attention to, and making people think of words in ways that were not intended with this dumb ass censoring. I use to work at a center that showed movies in their lobby. They had a similar audio system in place for cuss words. Most annoying thing in the world. Funny though when someone brought in "Raw" and a Cheech and Chong movie. Almost felt like I was back in the era of silent movies.

Have you read anything relating to this story? Wait, I can answer that myself. Clearly you didn't see where Wes was 1) taken into custody for a 5150 or 2) witnesses say he was obviously on something. But, sure, it's the trainer who got mad and reacted inappropriately. Sheesh!

The guys talking in the background sound like idiots. And their laughing shows their lack of humanity. Sick.

Actually, this is hilarious. Compare it to Van Dame getting knocked out in one shot. Same for Suge Knight. Any time somebody tries to play "tough guy", they run the risk of this happening. "Don't start no poop and there won't be no poop." I paraphrased Little John so as not to get censored. Maybe you just have to have a certain testosterone influenced point of view. By the way Van Dame was KO-ed by his own bodyguard.

@MEL: try this one tell me if you like it


I dropped my ring down the drain. When I went to fi***** out, I needed pliers to get a hell o*****ood grip. Once in sight it was easy to grasp. Is it true that the pen is mightier then the sword?

Lets see what gets censored

What people seem to be forgetting is that Weston attacked the trainer first. Once someone attempts to assault your person you are within your rights to defend yourself until the person is incapable of placing you (or others) in further harm. Meaning you can beat on them until they lose consciousness or are incapable of pursuit.

Weston should consider himself lucky this trainer didn't just break his knee out from under him.

Please, please someone tell me what Wes wanted to order off the menu that caused him to have a nuclear meltdown. Seriosly, who among us has not run amuk when told that we could not order the o-rings? It is kinda cool that this punk got a beat down from a bigger punk.
