Diddy Will Not Face Criminal Charges in UCLA Fight

Hip-hop mogul can put infamous kettlebell incident to rest.

Published September 10, 2015

Diddy is in the clear over his arrest for a dispute involving a UCLA coach.

TMZ is reporting that the hip hop mogul won't face any criminal charges stemming from the June altercation with Sal Alosi, UCLA's strength and conditioning coach. Diddy allegedly confronted Alosi over the coach bullying his son, Justin Combs, a player on the team. The music superstar allegedly swung a kettlebell at the coach. Felony charges against Diddy were dropped in early July.

Despite not facing any criminal charges, the Los Angeles City Attorney will still conduct an informal office hearing on October 15 with Diddy and his attorney. According to TMZ, that hearing could result in Diddy simply getting a warning or being asked to attend anger management classes.

Shortly after the June incident between Diddy and Alosi, Justin took to his Instagram account and thanked his dad for always having his back.

Diddy actually addressed the incident and his infamous fall at the 2015 BET Awards in an interview with Power 105's The Breakfast Club last month.
