He was charged with a felony assault with a deadly weapon, reported Ace Showbiz.
UCLA said in a statement, “Shortly after 12:30 PM, 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.
“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.”
“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation. This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved. While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time,” Jim Mora, head coach said in a statement.
