Yep, you read that headline correctly.
The son of hip-hop mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Justin Combs, is a member of the UCLA football team, where he’s “controversially” on scholarship. And, according to TMZ.com, Diddy has landed himself in some legal hot water as a result of his alleged actions in connection to an incident involving a Bruins assistant coach.
From the celebrity gossip website:
P. Diddy has been arrested for allegedly getting into a fight with a football coach at UCLA … where his son is on the team, TMZ Sports has learned.
We’re told Campus Police took the music mogul into custody early Monday afternoon. …
One source says an assistant coach was screaming at Justin on the field. At some point later, we’re told Diddy confronted the coach in his office and grabbed him. Diddy was arrested for assault.
The website added that Diddy actually wanted to call police, but the phone was taken from him. UCLA has yet to return a request seeking comment on the alleged incident.
The identity of the assistant allegedly involved was not revealed.
Combs, a defensive back, has played in seven games the past three seasons — four in 2014, three in 2013.
