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.

Trainer had too. WC was out of control. You guys would rather see the trainer get hurt or someone else I guess.

What a load of crap. Who is this trainer anyway? Hitler? Nobody no matter who they are has any right whatsoever to dictate to another adult what they can and cannot eat. A trainer is there to suggest and motivate not dominate. Weston shouldn't have attacked but this guy should have backed off and walked away before it came to this. I'm thinking a lot of this trainers strategy relies heavy on steroid use.

I think the trainer went way overboard. IDK what Weston did, but this is no longer self-defense when the trainer beats the living crap out of him and then holds him down after.

Also, what kind of world are we living in where everyone pulls out their cellphones and starts video taping this kind of sh*t instead of calling 911?

How much does Nic pay the trainer to beat the frack out of his son? The trainers I see at the gyms I've gone to don't seem to provide this kind of service.

As soon as he makes sure his son is o.k. he should press a lot of assault charges. ton's of assault charges and fire him and maybe sue for punitive damages to boot.thats not right at all.poor kid.

No wonder they say ordering fries is hazardous to your health.

Why didn't this trainer get arrested for his brutal assault and battery of Weston? One missed kick doesn't justify that kind of retaliation. This is a disproportionate and excessive response. You don't keep hitting someone (eg. your client) when he's down and defenseless. Who does this trainer think he is? I'm guessing he's going to lose most of his clients, if he has any.
