Diddy has been arrested for allegedly fighting with a UCLA football coach. TMZ sports are reporting that campus police took Puff into custody early Monday afternoon. The fight reportedly took place at the UCLA athletic facility.
Diddy’s son Justin Combs, is a defensive back for the team. According to sources, an assistant coach was screaming at Justin on the field which his pops didn’t like so he decided to confront the coach in his office. Diddy reportedly grabbed the coach which led to him being arrested for assault.
A source close to Diddy tells TMZ that the mogul initially wanted to call the police but the phone was taken out of his hand. Diddy is reportedly still in custody at the campus jail.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Diddy allegedly attacked the coach with a kettlebell weight. But Diddy claims he acted in self defence.
TMZ’s sources (how many they got?) tell them that Diddy insists the drama began during a workout session on sunday (June 21) because coach Sal Alosi was “riding Justin badly” and told him not to come back until the end of the summer.
Diddy visited the campus on Monday (June 22) to see coach Alosi believing the coach has it out for Justin, but things didn’t go well when he arrived at the campus. The coach wouldn’t see Diddy and the staffs told him to leave but Puff went to Alosi’s office instead where Alosi threatened to call security if Puffy didn’t leave.
Diddy also threatened to call the police which made Alosi go after Diddy with his hands. Diddy insists he only grabbed the kettlebell as an act of self defence but he never really had intention of injuring the coach.
Another of TMZ’s numerous sources tell them that Puff confronted coach Alosi while he was on the phone. Diddy was allegedly told to “hang on” but he wasn’t having it so he picked up a kettlebell and swung it at the coach, narrowly missing him. The coach would probably be dead now if the bell had connected, a source says.
The entire altercation was allegedly caught on tape. Who else smells a law suit coming?
