UPDATE: UCPD has updated Sean Combs’ charges to three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery. He posted bail, and has a court date scheduled for July 13.
Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon at UCLA on Monday afternoon.
According to TMZ, the hip hop mogul — formerly known as both Puff Daddy and P. Diddy — was taken in after assaulting strength coach Sal Alosi. The fight was reportedly sparked because Alosi was yelling at Diddy’s son, cornerback Justin Combs, during a strength and conditioning session.
Diddy later confronted Alosi and grabbed him in his office inside the UCLA athletic facility. In a press release, the university stated that Diddy’s weapon was a kettlebell.
No one was seriously injured.
