Weston Cage: Missing, Unhinged Before Meltdown

by at . Comments

Weston Cage had been missing before he went off the hinges and had to be subdued by police last week, and father Nicolas Cage had been trying to find him.

Nic organized a one-man search party in the form of Kevin Villegas - an assistant for Nic Cage for five years and Weston's trainer - to track down his MIA son.

The elder Cage dispatched Kevin to track down the 21-year-old and bring him home last week, which may have triggered the huge brawl between them.

Kevin quickly located his target in L.A., but Weston was resistant and aggressive, even threatening to rip of Kevin's "Christian f**king head."

Villegas reported the situation to Nicolas Cage, who instructed Kevin to call 911. When Weston realized cops were on the way, he flipped out.

Kevin, who served with the U.S. military, feared for his life because Weston is a highly-trained fighter. He came Weston with a flurry of blows.

Weston was hospitalized for a mental evaluation after the police arrived and say she may press charges against Villegas in the coming weeks.

His mother, Nic's former girlfriend Christina Fulton, has filed a giant lawsuit against the actor pertaining largely to his care of their only child.

It was foolish of Nick to send an untrained wrestling coach after his missing son. It landed up in a 'brutal brawl' because Weston is obviously quite ill and in need of treatment, and should have been traced by law enforcement, not someone likely to make his problems worse by engaging in a fight with him! It sounds like Weston would be better off under the care of his mum, she seems to have her head screwed on in the right place. Nick on the other hand seems very tactless in his approach to this problem and knows nothing about how to handle someone who is mentally ill, nevermind his own son. Why couldn't he track his own on down himself? Oh yeah, because he's afraid to be seen in public because he's famous. Very sad story.
