Diddy was arrested Monday on UCLA’s campus getting into a fight with a Bruins assistant football coach early Monday afternoon. Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, is a redshirt junior defensive back for the Bruins.
According to TMZ, one of UCLA’s assistant coaches was “screaming at Justin on the field,” and Diddy later “confronted the coach and grabbed him.” The 45-year old was then arrested for "assault with a deadly weapon", with the weapon being a kettlebell, and remains in custody on UCLA's campus.
Shortly after 12:30 p.m. today, Sean Combs (also known as P. Diddy) was arrested at UCLA’s Acosta Athletic Training Complex on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, which was a kettlebell. No one was seriously injured and UCPD is investigating. Combs is expected to be transported to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Inmate Reception Center later this evening.
“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation," UCLA head coach Jim Mora said in a statement. "This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved. While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”
