“I can confirm that Weston Cage Coppola was arrested today for assault with a deadly weapon,” a spokesman for the LAPD said.

“He was arrested by LAPD’s 77th Division.”

He was released on a $150,000 bail around 10 am.

“The family knew this was going to happen but needless to say, it is a very big shock,” a source close to the family told The U.S. Sun.

It is believed Nicolas Cage bailed his son out of jail.

A source with close knowledge of the situation confirmed to The U.S. Sun that Weston’s arrest was in connection to an assault on his mom, Christina, in April.

Fulton posted a statement detailing the “horrific” April incident with her son.

“Weston and I had no argument prior to the incident,” Fulton said.

“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.”

When Fulton arrived she claimed she “acted swiftly to ensure Weston’s safety.”

“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,” she continued.

“I have always supported helping my son with mental-health struggles.”

“I am doing all I can to get him the continued support he needs.”

Police claimed that Weston got into a verbal argument with the actress before the alleged assault, which left her covered in bruises, People reported.

LAPD confirmed to People that a battery report was taken at the time of the incident.

This morning’s arrest isn’t Weston’s first.

In 2017, the son of the National Treasure actor was arrested for a DUI and a hit-and-run.

Weston, who was 26 at the time, was arrested for driving under the influence, People reported.

Police said he hit several signs, parked cars, and mailboxes before crashing into a tree.

The police were first called to the scene after Weston allegedly fled the scene of a separate accident, which occurred a mile away.

After being examined at a hospital, he was charged with a DUI and arrested on a $30,000 bail.

Weston made headlines in 2011 after he faced domestic violence charges following a dispute between him and now ex-wife Nikki Williams, ABC News reported.

Weston’s troubled past

Wednesday’s arrest isn’t the only time Weston has gotten in trouble with the law.

In 2011, Weston was arrested twice for domestic violence after allegedly getting into an argument that turned physical with his now ex-wife Nikki Williams.

Court was released on a $50,000 bail, ABC News reported.

Six years later, in 2017, Weston was arrested for a DUI and a hit-and-run.

Police were first called to the scene after the heavy metal musician fled the scene of a separate accident which took place one mile away.

Police said that Weston hit several signs, parked cars, and mailboxes before finally crashing into a tree.

He was arrested on a $30,000 bail.
