Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested Monday afternoon after getting into a skirmish with UCLA strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi. According toa report by TMZ, Diddy tried to hit the coach with a kettle bell, which if you’re familiar with the weight training instrument, could easily take somebody’s head off.
Justin Combs was awarded a scholarship by the school back in 2012 and his time there has been relatively quiet, until now. Diddy is known to attend his son’s practices, but on Monday things took a turn for the worst when he allegedly confronted Alosi for “riding” his son Justin too hard during the session:
Diddy went to the campus today to speak with Alosi — believing he has an “issue” with Justin — but things didn’t go well when he arrived to campus.
Our Diddy sources say the coach would not see him and staff told him to leave … but Diddy went to Alosi’s office instead where Alosi told him to get out and threatened to call security if he didn’t leave.
We’re told Diddy said, “Fine, I’ll call police” … and Alosi snapped — going after Diddy with his hands.
We’re told Diddy insists he grabbed a kettlebell and held it up in a defensive position … but did not attack with an intent to injure the coach.
That account of the incident comes from a source close to Puff, but sources on the team’s side say the attack was unprovoked and that Diddy narrowly missed the man with the kettle bell. He is currently in the custody of UCLA campus police and has been charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon.
Meanwhile, at the G-Unit offices:
