Nic Cage -- The Man Hunt for Weston

6/13/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Weston Cage had gone missing last week in the hours before he went off the hinges and had to be subdued by cops ... and the guy who had to beat him down had been sent by Nic Cage to find him.

The one-man search party was 39-year-old Kevin Villegas (left) -- who worked as an assistant for Nic Cage for the past 5 years. We're told Kevin's primary responsibility was looking after Weston.

But Tuesday, when Weston went M.I.A -- sources tell us Nic dispatched Kevin to track down the 21-year-old and bring him home. Kevin quickly located his target in L.A., but we're told, Weston was resistant and aggressive -- even threatening to rip off Kevin's "Christian f**king head."

0612_weston_fight_video_smallSources tell us Kevin immediately reported the situation to Nic ... who instructed Kevin to call 911. When Weston realized cops were on the way he flipped out and attacked Kevin with the roundhouse kick.

We're told Kevin -- who served with the U.S. military -- feared for his life because Weston is a highly-trained fighter ... and attacked Cage with a flurry of punches.

Cops came and Weston was hospitalized for a mental evaluation. Weston says he may press charges.

Loser father + loser son = two more losers in our society. This is what liberalism breeds. It is like terminal cancer.
Let the kid die.

He's 21 years old, he doesn't need a babysitter, if he's going to get into trouble, let him, and let him deal with the Consequence that comes with being an adult and responsible for yourself!

Nick obviously loves his son very much & is very concerned about him. Weston is only 21 years old, very immature and lack wisdom and direction in life...can any one relate to that? hello?
The kid needs lots of prayer and help from loved ones.

So since he invoked the word "Christian" in here, are we to assume Weston is some form of Islamic Jihadist? Perhaps we need to change his name to "Easton".

Do not underestimate Filipinos - I have two sons who are half-Filipino and half-Irish and both are nice guys you would NOT want to mess with. One is 6'1"/195 and the other is 5'10"/235.

I'm surprised by all of this anti-Cage posting going on here. If Nic Cage sent his assistant to find his son, surely there was a justifiable reason. 21 is still young and frankly, it appears as though Weston is showing signs of severe problems. What parent wouldn't move heaven and earth to get their child help? You can disagree with the tactics, but the intention is still the same--for the love of his child. If Weston poses a risk to himself and society, then I'm sure he is getting the appropriate treatment he needs. Instead of criticizing, lets focus our energy into more positive things...like wishing him a safe and speedy recovery!

I thought all along that this guy was not Weston's "trainer" but one of those hired watchers celebrities hire to keep them away from drugs.

First off, look at the size difference between the Trainer and Crazy Boy...and note that the one with the guyliner and the Elvira hairdo is holding his umbrella drink with his pinkie OUT.

This fatass has taken advantage of having a Daddy that gives him EVERYTHING, and he's turned out to be a silly looking goth moron.


"I'll kick your Christian ass " ?????

Is Weston under some kind of legal guardianship due to mental issues? As someone noted above, it's odd that a father would send an employee out to track down a 21 year old married man who leaves the house for a few hours.

he should press charges.. Protecting yourself is one thing but this guy went to far. Your not allowed just to beat the crap out of someone and this video hurts the guy.

Your only allowed to use as much force is needed to stop the threat. The law treats people who are trained different than others since they are trained to hurt people. He clearly has Weston down quick but was still hitting him.

Also not a good idea to hold someone either. You may think your awesome and cool and going to arrest the person but if you do it wrong or they figure out the crime was bull**** later you can be charged for holding a person and hell people have been charged for kidnapping for doing it and then moving them under force.

Just because Daddy sent him or he is a mma joke doesn't mean ****. Weston needs to press charges
