“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.
