Yesterday morning, it was reported that Nicolas Cage‘s son Weston flipped out on his personal trainer at a Hollywood restaurant only to end up arrested and placed on 5150 psychiatric hold when he failed to land a roundhouse kick. What was not known at the time was just how epically Weston had his ass handed to him which fortunately someone managed to record because we live in a marvelous, technological time. TMZ reports:
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.
After watching the footage, which I highly recommend if you’ve ever wanted to see an unholy Viking of the night get beat down in bright, sunny Los Angeles, I’m almost positive this 5150 business is a cover story for Weston Cage dying from taking 800 punches to the face. Because somehow, “My life coach kicked my ass for ordering the non-organic egg white flatbread,” doesn’t sound very metal. Call it a hunch.
