Combs was arrested about 12:30 p.m. at the Acosta Athletic Training Complex over an alleged assault involving a kettlebell, police said in a news release. (A kettlebell is a round piece of weightlifting equipment with a handle, usually made of cast iron.)
No one was seriously injured, police said. The charge is a felony, police said.
Earlier we reported that the entertainment mogul, whose son – Justin Combs – plays defensive back on the UCLA football team, confronted a coach about screaming at Justin and things went south from there.
According to TMZ, sources connected with Diddy are saying he acted in self defense and was not the aggressor.
Diddy insists the drama began during a workout session yesterday because strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi was “riding Justin badly” and told him not to come back until the end of the summer.
Diddy decided to go to the campus today to speak Alosi because he believes the coach has an “issue” with Justin.
