According to a Cage family friend, the man who unleashed the beating -- Weston's former trainer Kevin Villegas -- has since been fired ... and has become the target in a police investigation.

But law enforcement sources tell us, the LAPD is also investigating Weston himself -- after he allegedly incited the fight by attempting to roundhouse kick Villegas outside the Hollywood restaurant where the incident took place.

0609_weston_mini_launchWeston hasn't filed anything yet with officials -- but he plans to make his move as soon as possible.

Good for him I knew this was coming I can't see how what the trainer did is legal I am all for self defense but come on no one can deny the trainer took it too far the video is evidence 13 punches? Really? How is that self defense ? How could Cage "hurt" him at that point?

Weston looks like a total cheeseball. I don't know anything about the kid, but he does has the sort of face that needs a punch.

Kevin Villegas is a dirty Mexican. If we enforce our immigration laws this never would have happened.

Is he kidding? He's lucky the trainer didn't let him kick or punch him then turn around and sue the hell out of him. From what I've read he's been Weston and Nicolas' trainer for years, now evidently Nicolas has fired him over this incident. If the story would have been, "Nicolas Cage's son Weston assaults and beats trainer on Hollywood street", that trainer would have received one nice settlement, now he's just out of a job.

Hey weston...You were the Offender! That means you started the agression. The State of California self defense laws state the victim can take equal or greater acts to defend himself or herself and go on the offense...Which Kevin did and kicked your Butt!!! So don't whin now after the fact!

U DON'T EVEN NO THE MAN,&IF U EVER CARED TO REALLY LISTEN TO HIM, YOU'D C AN INTELLIGENT,PASSIONATE YOUNG GUY. SINCE WHEN{ESPECIALLY IN H.W.} IS BEING DARK , A BAD THING, IT'S A STYLE, PERSONA, U NO, WHAT MAYB U LACK? FAULT SOMEONE FOR WORTHY REASONS, YUR RANTS ARENT DESERVING OF HIS EARS. LEGALLY SPEAKING,TRAINER HAD NO NEED 2 ENFORCE THOSE EXCESSIVE REPEATED BLOWS. THAT'S NOT PROTECTING HIMSELF, THAT'S A CRIME! SADLY, IF THAT WERE A MODEL TYPE WEARIN A SUIT & TIE,THIS STORY WOULD HAVE PLAYED OUT DIFFERENTLY.
