Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested yesterday and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
The 45-year-old hip-hop star allegedly went after a football coach with a kettlebell on the college campus of UCLA.
The rapper was arrested on campus shortly after the incident. According to TMZ, the coach that was attacked was strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi, and they have reported that the event was caught on camera.
The head coach at UCLA, Jim Mora, released a statement saying, “I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation.”
“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.
The music mogul was reportedly at the college to watch his son, Justin Dior Combs, play football. Justin had posted a picture of himself and his father with his team to Instagram to celebrate Father’s Day.
The 21-year-old was seen getting into an SUV soon after his father was arrested. It is yet unknown what caused the incident.
According to E! Online, Mr Combs bail has been set at €140,000.
