We haven’t really heard much lately from Weston Cage, the son of constantly-lit firecracker Nicolas Cage. The last time we heard from Nic’s 26-year-old goth son, he was sort of settled down and trying to do the husband and daddy thing. He took a break from the picket fence life and brought back the Weston Cage of six years ago.
TMZ says that on Saturday around noon, Weston was driving in the San Fernando Valley and got into a minor accident with another driver. Weston and the driver exchanged info and it was all good. This is where I would advise you to start humming the Benny Hill theme to yourself, because I assure you it makes it so much better. After exchanging details with the other driver, Weston reportedly got paranoid that the cops were going to show up and he sped off.
The irony of the situation is that Weston fled to avoid the police only to meet with them later on. About a mile away from the initial accident scene, Weston lost control of his car and crashed it into the following things: a row of mailboxes, a front lawn, a street sign, a tree. He lost a tire in the process.
TMZ says he was arrested and booked for DUI. The police made a stop at the hospital to make sure he wasn’t hurt from the crash.
Weston Cage is the spawn of two famous people, so technically this situation makes sense on paper. What doesn’t make sense is that TMZ has pictures from the scene, and it appears that Weston Cage was driving a white Chevy Camaro. A white Chevy? Weston Cage really seems more like the type who ask his dad to buy him the Addams Family car. At the very least, this latest stunt suggests that he should ask his dad to hire him a Lurch to drive him around.
