Diddy arrested for attacking son’s football coach with kettleball at UCLA

Diddy has been arrested for allegedly attacking an American college football coach with a kettlebell weight during an altercation, according to a report.

The incident allegedly took place at an athletic facility on the campus of UCLA where his son Justin Combs attends and plays football.

The 45-year-old rapper – real name Sean Combs – was taken into custody at the campus jail on Monday afternoon, TMZ reported.

He was arrested and later transferred by campus officers to the Los Angeles County Jail according to the site.

TMZ reports that the producer has been charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery.

The website revealed the star was screaming threats at Alosi – and the 5 or 6 people who rushed in to break up the fight shouting ‘I’m gonna f**k you up’

A source said ‘charges will most likely be dropped but [Diddy] won’t be allowed on the field anymore.’

Sources associated to the rapper claim he was acting in self-defense.

An insider connected to Diddy claims that he was not the aggressor and it all began during a workout earlier in the day where strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi was ‘riding Justin badly’ and eventually told him not to come back until the end of summer due to a perceived lack of effort.

Then the mogul went to the Westwood campus later on Monday to talk to Alosi because he felt like the coach had an ‘issue’ with Justin.

TMZ’s source said the coach would not see him and the staff told him to leave, but the father insisted seeing Alosi who had threatened to call security if he failed to make his exit.

The insider went on to claim that Diddy threatened to call police when the coach snapped and went after Diddy, who was forced to grab a kettlebell and hold it up in a defensive position. The source adds that the rapper did not attack with the intention of injuring the coach.

Another source gave a much different story as they claimed when the Last Night hitmaker was told to ‘hang on’ as the coach was on the phone, he grabbed a kettlebell and swung it which narrowly missed the coach.

Interns pulled Diddy off the coach, but he broke free and allegedly struck Alosi before swinging a kettlebell at one of the interns.

The situation had calmed down but campus police responding to the incident checked security video and subsequently arrested Diddy, according to an article by Bruin Report Online.

DailyMail.com has reached to representatives for Diddy who have so far been unavailable for comment.

A source for the gossip site revealed that the incident occurred after an assistant coach screamed at Justin on the field.

According to their insider, the coach ‘was riding Justin, screaming intensely at him,’ as the I’ll Be Missing You hitmaker observed from the sideline.

Later on in the day, Diddy reportedly confronted the coach in his office and grabbed him resulting in the arrest for assault.

On Monday night, a document was released by the Los Angeles Courts Sheriffs Department’s Inmate Information Center with the information of Diddy’s arrest as it revealed his first court date is set for July 13.
