Looks like Diddy is having a good week after all, despite an epic and might we add hilarious, fall during Sunday’s BET Awards. The Bad Boy CEO won’t be charged with a felony after his arrest last month following a fight with his son’s football coach.
Ricardo Santiago, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office told CNN, prosecutors declined to charge him with felony assault and battery because it was a weak charge. They have however referred the case to the Los Angeles city attorney’s office for misdemeanor filing consideration.
Diddy’s attorney, Mark Geragos, said he was grateful for the decision. “We are thankful that the district attorney rejected felony charges in this matter. This case never should have been part of the criminal justice system to begin with.”
Diddy was arrested on June 23 after swinging a kettlebell at UCLA football strength and conditioning coach, Sal Alosi, who reportedly was bullying his son Justin who plays on the team. Following the incident UCLA police arrested Diddy for felony aggravated assault and making terrorist threats.
