Nicolas Cage’s son Weston has been arrested for assault with a weapon, just weeks after his mother Christina Fulton was seen with a bruised face.

The LAPD confirmed that the 33-year-old actor was released on a $150,000 bail.

‘I can confirm that Weston Cage Coppola was arrested today for assault with a deadly weapon,’ a spokesman for the LAPD told The US Sun.

‘He was arrested by LAPD’s 77th Division.’

In May, Weston was accused of ‘attacking his mother and giving her a black eye.’

Weston was reportedly been named as a suspect in a battery report involving Fulton, according to TMZ.

The outlet reported at the time that the pair had a ‘verbal dispute’ that turned into a ‘physical scuffle’.

In a statement to People in May, Christine said: ‘Weston and I had no argument prior to the incident.’

‘On Sunday, April 28, I was reached out to by several of Weston’s best friends for assistance because they were experiencing Weston in a 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.’

‘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.’
