UCLA: Sean 'Diddy' Combs Arrested, Bail $160K, 3 Charges – Assault, Battery & Terrorist Threats

EDITORIAL: I really can’t believe how the liberal media is making excuses for P Diddy’s violence. He set an extremely bad example for his son, teaching him to handle problems with violence. There are proper channels for his complaints and none of them include trying to injure someone with a weight.

P Diddy was arrested. The coach was not. Media, stop making excuses. If I were to enact violence on the porn industry for what they did to my daughter, you sure wouldn’t be making excuses then, now would you?

P Diddy is NOT a music mogul. He is a thug and a pimp. Violence is how criminals handle conflict. That’s why they belong behind bars!

'Diddy' arrested in an assault with a kettlebell

Story highlights

  • Sean Combs’ rep says “Diddy” was trying to protect himself and his son
  • No one was seriously injured on the UCLA campus
  • Sean Combs’ son is a defensive back on the school football team

Los Angeles (CNN)Music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested Monday, accused of assaulting someone with a kettlebell at the university where his son plays football.

No one was seriously injured in the incident at the Acosta Athletic Training Complex on the University of California at Los Angeles campus, which took place around 12:30 p.m., said school spokesman Phil Hampton.

Officials did not disclose the alleged victim of the assault. But TMZ, which first reported the story, said Combs scuffled with a coach during a practice session.

Combs’ son Justin is a red-shirt defensive back on the school’s football team.

A representative for Combs called accounts of the incident “wholly inaccurate.”

“Any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son. We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed,” the representative said in a statement posted on Combs’ website Tuesday.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Combs captioned a photo of himself and his son “#FAMILYFIRST.” His son posted the same photo on his Instagram account, writing “I thank God for having a father that’s always there for me.. Love you pops!”

Combs was charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery, the university said.

Bond was set at $160,000, and Combs will have to appear in court on July 13, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation,” UCLA football coach Jim Mora said in a statement. “This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved.”

The coach said the school won’t be commenting further as it lets the “the legal process run its course.”
