UCLA Football: Report: Sean "Diddy" Combs Won't Face Felony Charges After Kettlebell Incident

As we head into Fourth of July weekend, we have a bit of resolution to this college football off-season's wildest story: the Sean "Diddy" Combs kettlebell saga at UCLA. The Los Angeles Timesreports that Diddy will not face felony charges after the incident, in which he allegedly attacked a UCLA football intern while brandishing a kettlebell after his son, cornerback Justin Combs, was yelled at during a training session by strength coach Sal Alosi.

Rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs won’t face felony charges after being arrested last week for allegedly attacking a UCLA intern and an assistant football coach during a dispute over his son, a player on the Bruins squad, according to officials.


Prosecutors consider several factors, he said, including the type of weapon or instrument used, the level of injuries and the criminal history of the accused.

“When you mess with a kettlebell and there are no injuries, no recent criminal history and it is a parent-coach argument rather than a street crime, the totality of the circumstances doesn’t add up to a felony crime beyond a reasonable doubt,” said Dmitry Gorin, a defense attorney and former prosecutor.

 We're sure the fans of UCLA's 2015 opponents will have some creative signs this fall, when the Bruins come to town.
