Music producer and rapper Sean Combs was arrested at a UCLA football summer workout, reportedly after getting into a physical altercation with an unnamed coach.
Combs' son, redshirt junior Justin, has played special teams and in the secondary for the Bruins. The coach was likely a member of the strength staff, considering NCAA rules restrict coach access during the summer.
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 [a weighted piece of exercise equipment, similar to a dumbbell]. 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.
According to TMZ, which first reported the news, Combs didn't like that the coach was screaming at Justin. At that point, he allegedly assaulted the coach.
At some point later, we're told Diddy confronted the coach in his office and grabbed him. Diddy was arrested for assault.
A source connected with Diddy tells TMZ Diddy himself initially wanted to call police, but the phone was taken out of his hands.
