It's like Batman v. Superman but somehow even more bloated. The New York Daily News reports 55-year-old Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil got into a physical fight with 52-year-old actor Nicolas Cage Thursday in Las Vegas. The fight broke out around 5pm at the Aria Hotel on the Vegas Strip, according to TMZ, which has exclusive video of the incident. A source tells TMZ it started when a woman approached Cage and asked for an autograph. The woman claims Neil then—for some unknown reason—grabbed her hair and pulled her to the ground.

That's when Cage stepped in. TMZ's video shows the end of the fight, with Cage grabbing Neil and screaming profanities at him to get him to calm down. A source says Cage was trying to wrestle Neil into a waiting car. The Daily News notes the two have been photographed many times hanging out together in Vegas, sometimes with Carrot Top. Neil was cited for battery—though not arrested—and faces up to a $1,000 fine and/or six months in jail. (More Nicolas Cage stories.)
