Weston Cage Arrested: Assault Case, Mental Health Crisis Unfold

 July 11, 2024

Weston Coppola Cage, son of Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage, was arrested on Wednesday for assault with a deadly weapon.

The arrest of the legendary actor's offspring stemmed from an incident in April in which Weston Cage, during a mental health crisis, allegedly assaulted his mother, Christina Fulton, as Page Six reports.

Arrest Follows April Incident

Weston, 33, was taken into custody by police at 7 a.m. local time and officially booked at 7:57 a.m. The Sun reported that the incident linked to his arrest occurred in April, involving a mental health emergency.

Fulton, 57, Weston’s mother, was reportedly trying to console her son during an emotionally charged episode, when he allegedly turned violent. As a result, Fulton sustained visible injuries, including a black eye and yellow bruises.

Sources told TMZ that the Los Angeles Police Department had been searching for Weston following this altercation, but he had managed to leave his mother’s house before law enforcement could apprehend him.

Details of the Alleged Assault

On the day of the incident, Fulton was asked by several of Weston’s friends to assist him due to his mental health crisis. “Upon my arrival, I was met by my son who clearly was in a state of a mental-health breakdown, which in turn became a horrific experience,” Fulton shared.

She further expressed her ongoing commitment to supporting her son, stating, “I have always supported helping my son with his mental-health struggles. I am doing all I can to get him the continued support he needs.” Family sources mentioned that Weston’s arrest, while anticipated, was still a significant shock to those close to him.

Police Involvement and Legal Proceedings

By Wednesday afternoon, law enforcement confirmed that Weston Cage was no longer in their custody. His bail had been set at $150,000 and was paid by his father, Nicolas Cage.

Representatives for Nicolas Cage did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the situation.

Despite the incident, Fulton’s attorney emphasized her cooperation with the investigation. “My client has fully cooperated with the investigation and supports any decision made by law enforcement after they independently examined the evidence and the facts,” said the attorney.

Family Dynamics and Mental Health

Nicolas Cage and Christina Fulton, who were never married, share Weston as the only child between them. Nicolas Cage has two other children from different relationships: Kal-El Cage, 18, with ex-wife Alice Kim, and August, 1, with his current wife, Riko Shibata.

The ordeal underscores ongoing challenges with mental health within the family and the broader implications it may have on their legal entanglements.

Fulton’s statement to TMZ sheds light on the severity of Weston’s crisis and her ongoing role in supporting him through his struggles.

Public Reactions and Future Implications

The public's reaction to Weston Cage’s arrest has been mixed, with some expressing concern over his mental health and others focusing on the legal ramifications of his actions.

The incident has sparked discussions about mental health awareness, particularly within high-profile families and the pressures they face.

As the case unfolds, it remains to be seen what legal consequences Weston will face and what measures will be taken to address his mental health needs.


In summary, Weston Coppola Cage was arrested on Wednesday for assaulting his mother, Christina Fulton, during an April mental health crisis.

Despite the trauma and legal challenges, efforts to support Weston’s mental health continue. The family’s experience highlights the complex interplay between mental health and legal issues, particularly in the public eye.

Law enforcement and family members are navigating a path forward that balances legal accountability and necessary mental health interventions.
