Sean 'Diddy' Combs arrested for assault at UCLA

WESTWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs was arrested Monday at UCLA for allegedly assaulting someone with a kettlebell.

Combs was arrested at about 12:30 p.m. at the Acosta Athletic Training Complex on campus. He was booked on three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery. No one was seriously injured.

"I'm thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation. 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," UCLA football coach Jim Mora said in a statement.

Shortly before noon, Combs posted a photo on his Facebook page about a father-son football game. Combs' son Justin Combs, 20, is a defensive back for UCLA's football team.

He was taken to campus jail and was later transported to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Inmate Reception Center. Combs posted bail, which was initially set at $160,000 but was later reduced to $50,000.

He was scheduled to be back in court on July 13.
