American rapper, Sean John Combs also known by his stage names Puff Daddy, Diddy, has been arrested and locked away.
Diddy was arrested on UCLA’s campus Monday for getting into a fight with a Bruins assistant coach early that day.
He was charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery.
According to reports, one of UCLA’s assistant coaches screamed at Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, while on the field sparking the wrath of his singing father.
Diddy reportedly confronted and grabbed the coach in a fit of rage.
The singer was arrested for assault and detained at the campus jail where he remains in custody.
UCLA in a statement said Diddy assaulted the coach with a deadly weapon (a kettlebell – a piece of weightlifting equipment).
“Shortly after 12:30 p.m. today, Sean Combs (also known as P. Diddy) was arrested at UCLA’s Acosta Athletic Training Complex on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, which was a kettlebell,” UCLA statement reads in parts.
“No one was seriously injured and UCPD is investigating. Combs is expected to be transported to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Inmate Reception Center later this evening.”
UCLA head coach Jim Mora said he was thankful that “our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation”.
“This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved. While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”
