Nicolas Cage’s Son Weston Arrested For DUI After Police Chase
Nicolas Cage’s son, Weston Cage, was arrested after getting into a car chase with the police. He was later charged with a DUI and taken to the hospital for examination.
Cage, a heavy metal singer, reportedly got into a fender bender in the San Fernando Valley on Saturday and stopped to exchange information with the other driver. According to TMZ, Cage then believed cops were arriving at the scene so he sped off, but lost control of his car and drove across a lawn before taking down a row of mailboxes.
The rocker went on to knock down a street sign, but then hit a tree and lost a tire. He was arrested when the police eventually caught up with him. This isn’t the first time Cage has found himself in legal trouble. He was arrested for domestic violence twice in 2011 after scuffles with then-wife Nikki Williams. He later checked into rehab to be treated for alcohol addiction.
The 25-year-old singer, whose mother is former model Christina Fulton, also dabbles in acting and has appeared in a few of his dad’s movies, including Lord of War and Rage. He also provided songs for the soundtracks of his father’s films, Drive Angry and Joe.
