TMZ.com has obtained video footage of Weston "Arcane" Coppola Cage the 20-year-old frontman of the California-based black metal band EYES OF NOCTUM and son of actor Nicolas Cage taking "13 hard punches to the face" in the middle of a Hollywood street during a violent confrontation with his personal trainer yesterday.
The footage begins moments after Weston allegedly tried to deliver a roundhouse kick to his trainer when the trainer refused to allow Weston to order a certain item off the menu at the Farmer's Kitchen. The site reports, "After a brief scuffle, the trainer takes Nic's son 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."
As previously reported, Weston Cage was taken to the hospital by ambulance for a mental evaluation and possible 5150 psychiatric hold.
(A 5150 hold allows a qualified officer or clinician to involuntarily confine a person deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to himself/herself and/or others and/or gravely disabled.)

Weston Cage married 22-year-old girlfriend Nikki Williams on April 24 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Nicolas Cage, who was arrested in April for domestic abuse, public drunkenness and disturbing the peace stemming from a loud altercation with his wife, Alice Kim, sported a black and white tux as he exited the French Quarter while on the way to the wedding.
