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.

I'm sorry, if you're sent to take someone somewhere against their will, and they attack you, YOU are not allowed to press charges. What a tool.

What happenned to the story that TMZ first put out that said Weston became enraged because he could not order what he wanted off a menu? Ya'll should really wait until you are positive about facts-this brings your credibility way down.

Leave him alone.
He's an adult.

They are at fault for going after him.

ok kiddies... how many of you have ever had to care for a mentally ill family member? Mom is truly and legally mentally ill from what I understand... most mental illness can be and often is hereditary... from what I've heard since this guy was in high school, it sounds like it was in this case. Am I wrong that he has a "rep" for stupid stunts? Does Cage have more then one grown kid?

So kid goes awol for a few days... dad's concerned. He has a guy with physical defense training working for him...rather then call the cops and alert all us armchair quarterbacks, he sends Kevin to round up his kid... with me so far... Kevin finds the kid... kid wants to go eat instead of letting dad know whats up... words are exchanged... fist and feet are thrown... kid gets to taste knuckles... and exactly what Cage did not want happens.... we all sit around and second guess his parenting. Really, with all the crappy movies this once talented actor has made in the last year or so, this is what people are going to focus on for weeks. Maybe that's a good thing for Cage. Maybe this was all done just for that... doubt it.

My point is... if you have NOT had to care for a family member who has serious psychotic problems... who the "F" are all of you to attack his attempt to find and safeguard his kid? Forget about age...most mental illness does. Even if he only did it to avoid the bad press...so? What the hell would all you smug self-righteous people do? Call the cops... there's TMZ...ignore and let him fall? There's TMZ... go through the courts to be his conservator? There's TMZ... I only keep saying TMZ because they are acting in this example as a rep for the press as a whole. Similar to when somebody says "You" when they mean humanity at large. It seems like a no-win here for Cage.

That's a good beating! :D
One can see that Kevin actually knows how to fight inside the guard. Weston also has mma training since he keeps Kevin in the guard - one only does that if you know the arts. Unfortunately Weston didn't train long enough LOL.
