Diddy Will Not Face Felony Charges Over UCLA Arrest

He could still face misdemeanor charges in the arrest, which stemmed from a physical altercation with his son's football coach.

Sean “Diddy” Combs just caught a big break.

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office has declined to pursue a felony case against the rap mogul, who was involved in a physical altercation with a UCLA football coach last week.

Diddy’s case has now been handed off to the City Attorney’s Office, which will determine whether any misdemeanor charges should be filed.

Diddy was arrested on June 22 after allegedly swinging a kettleball at an assistant coach. The incident reportedly happened after the 45-year-old rapper confronted the coach for yelling at his son, Justin Combs, who plays for the Bruins’ Division 1 football team.

Diddy was later arrested by campus police and booked on three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery. He posted $160,000 bond within hours of his arrest and has adamantly claimed that he was defending himself and his son.

The UCLA staff has said they don’t want to pursue a court battle over the incident, which could have potentially contributed to the District Attorney’s decision not to file felony charges.
