Yesterday Bedhead covered the initial details in the insane story of Sean Diddy Comb’s altercation with his son’s strength and conditioning football coach at UCLA. Diddy either brandished a kettlebell in a defensive maneuver, if you believe his side of the story, or actually swung the kettlebell at the coach and missed him. The fight was said to be over the fact that the coach, Sal Alosi, was berating Diddy’s son, defensive back Justin Combs, for not working hard enough in a training session.
Diddy went to the coach’s office to question him after his son got bitched out on the field, which Diddy witnessed and took personally. The coach allegedly told Justin “I don’t care if your dad’s here. This is UCLA. I’m going to treat you just like I treat everyone else.” Alosi initially refused to see Diddy and was on the phone when Diddy stormed into his office. Diddy’s side claims that he only held the kettlebell up after Alosi tried to attack him and that it was a defensive move. TMZ reports that Diddy swung the kettlebell at Alosi and could have killed him if he didn’t miss. There’s supposedly video of the incident.
Diddy is currently out of jail after posting $50,000 bond. What’s more is that he’s been charged with assault, battery and making terroristic threats.
Things just went from bad to worse for Diddy … like “terrorist” worse … ’cause the rap mogul is now being accused of making TERRORIST THREATS during the fight at UCLA.
We broke the story … Diddy was arrested Monday after allegedly attacking UCLA football strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi at the university athletic complex.
Diddy was initially held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon because witnesses say he swung a kettlebell at Alosi — but later that night, officials tacked on more charges:
– 3 counts of assault w/ deadly weapon
– 1 count of making terrorist threats
– 1 count of battery
It appears Diddy was allegedly screaming threats at Alosi — and 5 or 6 people rushed in to break up the fight.
Diddy was eventually released on bail after posting $50k bond — but this case is far from over.
I get the assault and battery charges, but terroristic threats? What the hell did Diddy say? Isn’t there a distinction to be made between some hothead claiming he’s going to blow stuff up (if that’s indeed what happened) and an actual terror plot?
Whatever happened, Diddy obviously took it way too personally and flipped out. As Bedhead pointed out, his son is a junior in college, he’s not some school kid who needs his daddy to step in and defend him. I really hope we get to see the video at some point, and I hope it has audio too. TMZ needs to get on that. We need to know what “making terroristic threats” entails.
