National treasure Nicolas Cage apparently got in a fight with Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil after Neil allegedly attacked a woman.

According to TMZ, the incident occurred Thursday at about 5 p.m. in Las Vegas at the Aria Hotel. TMZ's sources said that Neil grabbed a woman who asked Cage for an autograph by the hair and threw her to the ground. The scuffle between Cage and Neil was caught on video. It appears to show Cage, in a blue suit and sunglasses, trying to calm Neil down outside of the hotel.

"Stop this s— now!" Cage screams, before bringing Neil into a big bear hug and assuring the singer that he loves him.

Police told TMZ that Neil was cited for battery, but not taken to the station.

Neil has had quite a few run-ins with the law. In 2002, he was arrested after punching a record producer at the Rainbow Bar & Grill in West Hollywood. In 2003, he was arrested for assaulting a sex worker at a brothel. In 2004, he was accused of assaulting a sound engineer at a show in Texas. In 2011, Neil was charged with battery and disorderly conduct after allegedly getting into a fight with his ex-girlfriend. This is on top of a couple of recent DUI arrests. And let's not forget he also got into a car crash in 1984 in Redondo Beach that killed one of his passengers, 24-year-old Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas Dingley. Neil's BAC at that time was 0.17.
