EXCLUSIVE

Nic Cage‘s son is facing up to a year in jail for a wild car chase that ended with him smashing head-on into a tree.

The L.A. City Attorney is slapping Weston Cage with 3 charges … DUI and two counts of hit and run … all misdemeanors. According to law enforcement, Wes’ blood alcohol was .15, almost double the legal limit.

As we previously reported, Wes allegedly got into a fender bender in February, but booked it before cops arrived. He lost control of his car while fleeing and took down mailboxes, a street sign and then hit the tree.
