Nicolas Cage's rocker son Weston and his wife are both facing felony domestic violence charges after neighbours heard screams for help coming from their Los Angeles home on Monday (04Jul11).
Cops arrived at Weston Cage's Lake Hollywood home in the early hours to investigate the domestic disturbance and escorted the Eyes of Noctum star and his wife Nikki Williams to a local police station for questioning.
They were subsequently placed under arrest amid claims the couple had become embroiled in a violent argument. During the fight, songwriter Williams is alleged to have attacked Cage with a bottle, cutting his arm, and punched him before threatening to jump off a balcony.
Cage is accused of reacting with force, prompting police to book them on the felony counts.
The incident took place just hours after Weston claimed in a Tmz.com interview that he had cleaned up his act and turned his back on alcohol since his hospitalisation following a clash with his personal trainer in June (11).
He said, "I'm currently incredibly clean. (I'm) getting back into the path of martial arts which I've doing for 15 years..."
Cage wed Williams in April (11).
