Cops threatened to taser the Eyes of Noctum star when they arrived at the The Farmer's Kitchen in Hollywood, reports TMZ.com.
According to the website, the 20 year old was strapped to a gurney and taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a mental evaluation. His father rushed to the hospital to be with his son.
Sources claim the fracas in the restaurant came hours after Weston's new wife, songwriter Nikki Williams, stormed out of their Hollywood home following a row. The couple was married in New Orleans, Louisiana in April (11).
Los Angeles police were investigating the restaurant altercation as WENN went to press.
Weston is Nicolas Cage's son with his actress ex Christine Fulton.
It has been a headline-grabbing year for the family - the movie star was arrested in New Orleans shortly before his son's wedding, following a drunken street row with his wife Alice Kim.
Charges of domestic violence and disturbing the peace were dropped last month (May11).
Nicolas Cage donned a tuxedo to watch his rocker son Weston marry his fiancee on Easter Sunday (24Apr11). The couple exchanged vows in New Orleans, Louisiana, where the father of the groom was arrested and charged with domestic violence and disturbing the peace after a street argument with his wife Alice Kim earlier this month (Apr11).
The Eyes of Noctum star proposed to girlfriend Nikki Williams earlier this month (Apr11) and the couple is already planning a trip down the aisle.
Sources close to the couple tell TMZ.com, 20-year-old Weston and Williams kept the engagement a secret until earlier this week (beg18Apr11) when they posted the news on their Facebook pages.
Reports suggest the two will wed in New Orleans, Louisiana, where the father of the groom-to-be was arrested and charged with domestic violence and disturbing the peace after a street row with his wife Alice Kim last weekend (16Apr11).
Weston is Cage's son from his romance with actress Christina Fulton.
The musician, 20, needed medical attention on 1 April (11) to stitch up a nasty gash.
Reports suggest he suffered the injury following a heated argument with his girlfriend Nikki Williams at his house in Lake Hollywood, but a spokesperson for the National Treasure actor has played down the claims.
The rep insists Weston's wound was "minor" and the result of a mishap not related to a fight with Williams, according to the National Enquirer.
The rocker is Cage's son with actress Christina Fulton.
Christina Fulton - the mother of Cage's son Weston - is suing the actor, claiming he promised to give her the deeds to her home when they split, but never transferred the ownership.
She also claims Cage served her with a 60-day notice to vacate the property in September (09), leaving her with a $1 million (£625,000) tax debt on the property.
Fulton had scheduled a press conference, in which she planned to elaborate on claims Cage subjected her to "mental, physical and emotional abuse" - but cancelled at the last minute, prompting speculation the star had settled the suit.
But Cage's lawyer Marty Singer reveals the tell-all was axed after the actor threatened to countersue his ex.
Singer tells the New York Daily News, "He hasn't paid her a nickel. They cancelled the press conference because we said we'd sue them if they held it."
According to the suit, filed on Tuesday (08Dec09) in Los Angeles and obtained by TMZ.com, Fulton claims Cage bought her a house in Los Angeles in 2001 in return for her giving up her acting career to take care of the couple's son Weston.
But when she attempted to sell the property earlier this year (09) she realised it wasn't hers to sell - Cage had reportedly never transferred the title.
Fulton also claims that Cage served her with a 60-day notice to vacate the premises in September (09) and blames her ex-husband's former business manager, Sam Levin, for leaving her with a $1 million (£625,000) tax debt on the property.
In the lawsuit, Fulton also alleges "mental, physical and emotional abuse" but fails to expand on her claims.
Cage's lawyer, Marty Singer, insists the lawsuit is "an absurd claim," adding, "All of these claims are long-time barred by the statute of limitations and are baseless... We expect this lawsuit to be promptly thrown out."
Singer tells People.com, "This lawsuit is ridiculous... Nicolas Cage has given her approximately three million every year for many years, even though he was only obligated to pay her six thousand a month in child support."
The camera-shy teenager, who fronts the band Eyes of Nocturne, has become the latest celebrity to lash out at photographers - and it happened just minutes after Mike Tyson was arrested at Los Angeles International airport after lashing out at a lensman.
It appears Cage won't be facing battery charges - like Tyson - but he certainly shook up a few shoppers, who were forced to jump out of the way as the 18-year-old, nicknamed Wicked Wes, set about the unlucky photographer.
One bystander tells WENN, "He just went wild. He obviously wasn't happy about being snapped - and so he snapped.
"At one point, he pushed the snapper to the floor."
Weston, who is also a talented graphic novel artist, is Cage's son by model/designer Christina Fulton.
It's not a great time to be a Cage - Weston's dad is currently being forced to sell off houses and belongings to pay off a tax bill.

The honeymoon in Vegas is over. (And apparently has been for a long, long time.)
Oscar-winning star Nicolas Cage and actress/wife Patricia Arquette are divorcing after nearly five years of marriage, Arquette's publicist confirmed today.
Arquette, Cage Cage, 36, filed the petition Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing the dreaded "irreconcilable differences." The split was described as "amicable" and "a mutual decision" by Arquette's rep, Simon Halls.
The real shocker is Cage's divorce petition: It says the couple separated just nine months after they wed -- roughly four years ago.
Rumors had been circulating about the couple's happiness for the past few years. While the two often were arm in arm at premieres and award shows, onlookers commented that they looked about as thrilled as siblings forced to share the backseat on a road trip. The two have subsequently been tight-lipped about their marriage, although Cage recently told Movieline "you don't just throw in the towel when there's any kind of a problem."
The couple, who recently co-starred in Martin Scorsese's "Bringing Out the Dead" met in 1987. Cage was so besotted that he was said to have immediately declared, "I love you, and I'm going to marry you."
She didn't believe him, so he asked her to put him on a "mission" to prove his love to her. Legend has it, Arquette, now 31, complied by giving him the most Herculean of scavenger hunts, demanding items such as a black orchid and reclusive author J. D. Salinger's autograph.
Cage succeeded in obtaining the autograph (for the record, there are no black orchids), which impressed -- and probably frightened -- Arquette, who told him to forget about the rest of the list. She agreed to go on a getaway to Cuba with him, but when the trip fell through and Cage's decidedly unattractive temper flared, Arquette split.
During their time apart, Cage squired actress Sarah Jessica Parker and model Kirsten Zang, to whom he was engaged until 1994. Arquette kept company with Christian Slater and Matthew McConaughey. They both also became parents, he to son Weston Coppola Cage, now 9, with his then-girlfriend Kristina Fulton; she to son Enzo, now 11, with Paul Rossi. The two remained close friends until they crossed paths again in 1995.
This time, after a Pamela Anderson-Tommy Lee-length courtship, it was love, and the two wed April 8, 1995. But it was Arquette who proposed, showing up at Cage's house dressed head to toe in black vinyl, carrying a big purple wedding cake.
"I knew I was with the right woman," Cage said in a TV interview.
One would think the match was one made in heaven (or at least Hollywood), since both Cage and Arquette have famous bloodlines. Arquette is the younger sister of Rosanna ("Desperately Seeking Susan") and older sister of David, the "Scream" actor married to Courteney Cox. Cage's lineage includes uncle Francis Ford Coppola. As a young actor, Cage dropped the family name and adopted the moniker of comic-book strongman Luke Cage.
Cage, whose scored his first leading role in 1983's "Valley Girl" and began garnering notice in "Peggy Sue Got Married," directed by his uncle, shot to the A-list when he won the 1995 Best Actor Oscar for "Leaving Las Vegas." Of late, he has gone onto fashion himself as a action star in flicks such as "The Rock," "Con Air" and "Face/Off."
Arquette is perhaps best known for heating up the screen with Slater in "True Romance" (1993).
