Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested by the UCLA Police Department on Monday on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, which was a kettlebell. He was also charged with one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery.
Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, is a defensive back on the football team.
UCLA director of community relations Nancy Greenstein confirmed the arrest to USA TODAY Sports and the university issued a statement saying the altercation took place at the Acosta Athletic Training Complex.
No one was seriously injured. Officials did not identify the victim of the assault but TMZ reported that Diddy, 45, got into a dispute with UCLA assistant football coach, Sal Alosi, a former New York Jets strength coach who was suspended by the NFL in 2010 for tripping a player.
The hip-hop music mogul was moved to Los Angeles County jail with a bail set for $160,000, according to public records, but sheriff’s officials reached by phone said he posted $50,000, the Associated Press reported. The reason for the discrepancy wasn’t clear.
