We caught up with Nicolas Cage shopping at Fed Segal around the same time his son, Weston, was having a breakdown at a restaurant across town.
Weston was with his trainer at The Farmer's Kitchen, and when Nic's son was told he couldn't order something off the menu, it set him into a violent rage, according to TMZ.
Cage blew up at his trainer and started pushing him and attempting to harm him, before the trainer took him down. Cops arrived on the scene and he was immediately taken to the hospital by ambulance for a mental evaluation, and possible 5150 psychiatric hold.
Nicolas Cage has rushed to his son's bedside at the hospital, where he will reportedly stay to help out as long as he's needed. We spotted the actor's car outside Cedars-Sinai last night.
Weston also reportedly had a fight with his new wife earlier in the day, which may have set him off, or made him more upset that usual.
