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.

It's easy to look at this from a distance and say the trainer was unnecessarily harsh, but I think he was just trying to knock Cage out enough for him to stop going ballistic. You can see him talking to the people coming up to him, probably telling everyone to call the police. I think he really wanted people to help him and instead everyone is just standing around laughing taking video on their cell phones. What a sad situation in so many ways.

Its so sad that Weston is getting beat up by his trainer and everyone is looking around and fliming instead saying stop or thats enough. I think both men are at fault and both should be arrested not just weston alone. Im sure when Nick Cage see this video he going after that trainer.

Trainer went to far with this beating. I HATE bullies and sucker-punchers, and this type of beating is senseless.
That "trainer" needs to get a dose of the same.

Lots of tough guys on here saying bystanders should have stepped in. Step in and have a knife or gun pulled on you, now you are headed to the hospital or morgue as well. Easy to say looking across a keyboard.

It's a damn embarrassment to all humanity...Also, what's with people censoring words that would never be considered offensive? It's ANNOYING.

I am so pissed the nerve of people just walking by and the nerve of the people who stopped to record this how sick is this world how about stopping it. I know that people can be cruel and things do get out of hand however this was pure ABUSE!!!! he has him pinned and he is beating the hell out of him. I feel for the Cage family. We all have been through something we are embarassed about no one falls short from it. Abuse is not fair in any way shape or form.

This is what happens when psychos reproduce. Yet, if you dare to suggest that people who are mentally unstable shouldn't have kids you're accused of infringing on people's rights.
and the madness continues....

Oh, I forgot to mention that they state Nic is prepared to stay with his son as long as he needs him, for now. Too little too late. He needs his dad forever! WTF!
I know, I sound bitter. I just can't help thinking that a parent with the means and the time to find out the problems of his children and turns a blind eye.........pitiful. This is a grown child who looks like he has been crying for something for quite awhile.

I'm glad so many people have commented on the disturbing lack of civilty on the part of the people taping, laughing and generally enjoying the show. The trainer seems to have a problem with self control. All the comments about Weston deserving what he got, and "I'd kick his ass, too" are just low life, stupid and gross.

A trainer? what a FN joke a real trainer would never punch a student and for sure a master of the arts would never use a closed fist on a student on the concrete or on any one.Fire that dmub tass FAKE master..tryin to better your master doesn`t mean a fist beatdown it means IF you strike your master while not in training your master walks away and will never teach you ever again.American fake mixed arts teachers are just thungs with students lined up as there are`nt many real masters in the state********* in the face after the fact means he isn`t a master but a nutjob ego head case!.every student sooner or later trys to best their teacher but a fist beating means his master does`nt know a art from a concrete wall and he could have done some damage or killed him then he would be in jail as one roundhouse isn`t a real art either as no one does them in the arts only in the movies.Get better fire the fake master and learn the arts better for 1000%more self control
