Sean Diddy Combs Arrested For Assault
Sean "Diddy" Combs (formerly known as Puff Daddy) has been arrested for assaulting his son's UCLA football coach.
The rap mogul, clothing line owner, liquor connoisseur and all around business genius had an verbal and physical altercation with UCLA strength and conditioning coach, Sal Alosi Monday afternoon (June 22nd, 2015). Alosi had gained notoriety during his tenure as a NY Jets coach for tripping the Miami Dolphins' Nolan Carroll during a game in December 2010. Alosi was fined and then resigned from the Jets and has not worked in the NFL since.
Combs was charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery. Sources that witnessed the exchange, say the terrorist threats were actually not more than curse words. Diddy was initially thought to have assaulting Alosi with a kettlebell, which is a round piece of weightlifting equipment with a handle, usually made of cast iron. Combs spokesperson has stated that he was acting in self-defense and the allegations are highly false. According to TMZ, Diddy was released after posting $50,000 bail.
Diddy's son, Justin Combs accepted a full merit-based athletic scholarship to play football at UCLA in 2012. He had previously turned down scholarship offers from Virginia, Illinois and Wyoming. Apparently, Justin isn't the only son of a rap mogul on the team either. Snoop Dogg's son, Cordell Broadus, is also on the team.
The UCLA coaching staff are rumored to be dropping the charges, as they don't want anymore bad press surrounding this issue. However, the D.A. could still move to prosecute, even without victims, seeing as there is video evidence.
