HipHollywood has learned that Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested on Monday after allegedly assaulting UCLA’s football conditioning coach, Sal Alosi. Diddy’s son Justin plays defensive back at the Los Angeles university.
The media mogul was reportedly taken into custody at 12:30 p.m. after swinging a kettlebell at Alosi. Witnesses say that the coach had been admonishing Justin earlier in the day during practice, “screaming intensely at him.”
“This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved,” coach Jim Mora said in a statement. “While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”
Diddy remains in custody at the campus jail, but we’re told that a statement will be released later today by UCLA authorities.
The Revolt executive clearly has some anger issues he needs to work out. Earlier this year, he allegedly assaulted Drake outside a Miami nightclub over the use of the “0 To 100” beat.
UPDATE — 5:23 P.M. PST
Diddy has been transferred to the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department where he’s likely to be charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
UPDATE — 10:56 P.M. PST
HipHollywood has learned that Diddy is a free man after posting bail at 9:51 P.M.
