Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested at UCLA on Monday afternoon on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly using a kettlebell to attack an assistant football coach, campus police confirmed.
The rapper’s son, Justin, is a defensive back on the football team.
Diddy watched practice from the sidelines as an assistant coach yelled at his son during a strength and conditioning drill.
Diddy then confronted the coach inside his office and was arrested for assault.
According to a UCLA press release, no one was seriously injured by the kettlebell, a large cast-iron ball-shaped weight with a single handle.
At the time of publication, he is still in custody on UCLA’s campus.
Combs is expected to be taken to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Inmate Reception Center on Monday evening.
“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation,” UCLA head coach Jim Mora said in the statement.
“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.”
Snoop Dogg’s son, Cordell Broadus, also plays football for the Bruins.
