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.

Just sayin'..    

I dont know... I think if some kook tried to roundhouse me to the face just because I told him he couldnt order some crap off of a menu, Id kick his a** too. None of us know what this Weston is capable of, right? You have to question the motives/ thought process o*****uy who tries to beat up someone who is A. his trainer and B. clearly more physically able to rough him up.

bahhh    

Okay, I kjus*****ched the entire 3 minutes...the trainer was totally acting in self-defense. Weston kept trying to bite him, trying to punch, etc...My question is why did the trainer not pin him down face-first...???? At any rate if you watch the entire thing it is clear the trainer was purely acting in self-defense against a crazed psycho. As for the others who did not get involved, you do not know what the person/people have in their possession...guns, etc, nor do you know what that person is capale of...why jump in to the middle of a fight...? Would you....? Call the cops, yes, but jump in...? No. My guess is most people would not, as nobody did.....

When he was on the ground he wasn't even fighting back. Why so many punches to the head? This trainer needs to be fired and charged with assault!
Stupid people standing around with their cell phones need their asses kicked while others sit and watch. Ignorant jerks! Things like this make me sick! How could people just laugh and watch something like that? The world really is going to hell in a handbag!

I LOVE at one point in the video, you get background music, and that music is "California Love" by Tupac and Dr. Dre. Classic!!!

Wow! I guess this trainer really takes his client's nutrition plan seriously.

the continued battering from the trainer was excess

once he had him under physical control he should have stopped

sounds like the trainer also has his own problems-lack of control being one of themm

Maybe Cage was out of control, but the trainer unnecessarily viciously punched him way too many times--And, all those people just standing around taking their pictures and joking about it. Is Hollywood really that jaded?

This is a trainer that teaches martial arts. How many of his students eventually want to test their skills? This is my support in the trainer's physical response. He he is responded to in a violent manner, he needs to "tell" his client that this is not acceptable. Also, one needs to consider the client.
This guy is the son of an actor, an actor married more times than I care to remember. Let's call him a sperm bank for a woman that needed financial security. We can see actor's behavior recently.
If this child, the client, was paid attention to, someone might be able to throw money at some mental heath help rather than a huge wedding and martial arts training.
