Weston Cage had gone missing last week in the hours before he went off the hinges and had to be subdued by cops … and the guy who had to beat him down had been sent by Nic Cage to find him.
The one-man search party was 39-year-old Kevin Villegas (left) — who worked as an assistant for Nic Cage for the past 5 years. We’re told Kevin’s primary responsibility was looking after Weston.
But Tuesday, when Weston went M.I.A — sources tell us Nic dispatched Kevin to track down the 21-year-old and bring him home. Kevin quickly located his target in L.A., but we’re told, Weston was resistant and aggressive — even threatening to rip of Kevin’s “Christian f**king head.”
Sources tell us Kevin immediately reported the situation to Nic … who instructed Kevin to call 911. When Weston realized cops were on the way he flipped out and attacked Kevin with the roundhouse kick.
We’re told Kevin — who served with the U.S. military — feared for his life because Weston is a highly-trained fighter … and attacked Cage with a flurry of punches.
Cops came and Weston was hospitalized for a mental evaluation. Weston says he may press charges.
