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.

Too many celebrities and quasi-celebrities like this think they have carter blanche to physically attack anyone they want without repurcussions. The law(especially the joke that is L.A. county sheriff's department thanks to Moonbeam Baca)bends over backwards to cover things up for them The people around them often take the abuse without a word or reaction because they value their jobs. Good to see someone who was willing to treat this kind of celebrity tantrum behavior the way it deserves to be treated.

What kind of a trainer gives his student a beat down? Guy needs to face some consequences, like a giant lawsuit or assault charges and a few weeks in the tank.

This alleged trainer is no professional. Well, a professional *******, maybe. I've trained in various forms of martial arts/self defense since I was seven. I can state as a fact that if some wimpy, drunken kid swung a sloppy roundhouse kick at me and missed, the most I would is take him to the ground and hold him there until he calmed down or someone called the police. Thirteen punches to the face was so far beyond the legal definition of self defense in that instance. That punk should have been arrested. And yes Weston Cage was wrong (and stupid) for going at the guy, but repeatedly pounding his head against concrete with his fists wasn't the way this trainer should have dealt with the situation. If he's any kind of martial artists at all, he could have easily protected himself and ended the situation without anyone getting hurt.

You should really lose all business licenses. Nic should file charges. What we don't know is how strong is Weston? I used to kickbox. And trainers love to give cheap shots to excelling students. If weston is suffering from mental problems he shouldn't have taken MMA classess anyway. That stuff is a license to kill. Charges should be filed. I don't believe weston has the know how to take down his trainer. yet his trainer pummeled him?
