Back in December, Diddy got into a messy scuffle with Drake over the origins of Drizzy’s “0 to 100” song. Now, it looks like Diddy’s gotten himself tangled up in another physical altercation. The rap mogul, also known as Sean Combs, is in police custody after being arrested for allegedly assaulting a UCLA football coach earlier today.
According to TMZ, Diddy took issue with how his son Justin was being treated at a Bruins football practice. (Justin is a red-shirt junior defensive back.) Diddy reportedly witnessed assistant coach Sal Alosi repeatedly yelling at his son; a source on-site even went so far as to say the coach was “riding Justin, screaming intensely at him.”
Tensions reached their boiling point after the practice, when police authorities say Diddy confronted Alosi and attacked him with a kettlebell weight. (The weight led officials to arrest Diddy for assault with a deadly weapon.) Diddy has yet to comment on the incident, but Jim Mora, UCLA football’s head coach, says he and the school “will let the legal process run its course.”
Update – Tuesday, 9:00 a.m.: Scout.com has provided more details on the incident, citing sources who were there.
In the next moment, according to many on the scene, Diddy attacked Alosi, until interns and other personnel pulled off Diddy. The celebrity broke free again at one point and struck Alosi. The personnel were then successful in getting Diddy out of the office and into the weight room, where Diddy picked up a kettlebell, which is a type of barbell, and then swung in at one of the interns.
Diddy was charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery. He has been released on $50,000 bond.
