Don’t mess with Nicolas Cage or his fans. Check this out. Real fight or drunken mess?
Nicolas Cage and Vince Neil got into a physical fight in Las Vegas on Thursday evening.
The 52-year-old Face/Off star and the 55-year-old Mötley Crüe singer were seen shoving each other outside the Aria Resort & Casino at approximately 5 pm.
According to TMZ, the rocker had just assaulted a woman inside the hotel, grabbing her hair and pulling her to the ground, and the actor was trying to calm down his friend outside.
Cage looked put together in a blue suit, but Neil appeared disheveled in a sloppy black T-shirt and camouflage cargo shorts. He also looked unsteady and confused.
Both wore sunglasses.
‘Stop this sh** now,’ the Moonstruck alum was heard screaming at the former heavy metal musician.
Cage then grabbed Vince and tried to put him in a lock to physically restrain him. Nicolas then soothed the headbanger, saying, ‘You’re OK, I love you.’
Bystanders stood around taking photos and a man who appeared to be a security officer attempted to diffuse the situation.

Law enforcement sources told the site ‘the fight went down at around 5 PM at Aria Hotel on the Vegas strip.’
It was added that the movie star and the rock icon were together inside Aria ‘when a woman came up to Nic and asked for an autograph.’
