As we previously reported, on Monday Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested at UCLA after he got into a fight with one of his son’s football coaches. The alleged victim is said to be strength and conditioning coach, Sal Alosi.
It’s said that the duo got into an altercation after the famous Dad came to complain that Alosi was too hard on the rapper’s son, Justin Combs — who’s a defensive back for the Division 1 school.
Diddy allegedly attacked Alosi with a kettlebell and threatened the coach — and the five or six people it took to supposedly contain the situation. The upset initially was said to have resulted in a felony charge.
However, it’s since been updated that the Ciroc-lover has been charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery.
What the what — why is he being accused of making terrorist threats?!
However, sources close to the rap mogul say that he acted in self-defense against the assistant coach. In case you forgot, Alosi is the infamous former NFL coach for the Jet‘s that tripped a Miami Dolphins player.
Unfortunately, this is not the icon’s first run in with the law. Diddy was previously arrested in 1999 for his involvement in a nightclub shooting, but was found not guilty on weapons charges.
After being held at the campus’ jail, the entrepreneur was carted off to the Los Angeles County Jail. He was freed later Monday evening after posting $50,000 bail.
UCLA coach Jim Mora shared in a statement:
“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.”
Hmm, very inneresting. Perhaps, they’re not looking to further infuriate Diddy?!
Nonetheless, the multi-millionaire has remained relatively silent since the ordeal occurred.
We hope this legal drama clears up for the 45-year-old sooner than later.
