Diddy Says Kettlebell Incident Leading To Arrest Was Self-Defense

Diddy - Dirty Money - Portrait Session

According to the L.A. Times… Police said Combs, 45, used a kettle bell in the confrontation inside the Acosta Athletic Training Complex on campus sometime before 12:30 p.m. on Monday. A kettlebell is a round piece of weightlifting equipment with a handle, usually made of cast iron.

In a statement… Diddy’s spokeswoman indicated that any reports that Combs was the aggressor are inaccurate…

“The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate. What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son. We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed,” the statement said.

According to the L.A. Times… Combs’ company, Revolt, identified the coach involved in the conflict as Sal Alosi, who gained notoriety in 2010 for tripping a Miami Dolphins player during special-teams play. He was suspended by the NFL for that incident and ultimately left the league and took a job at Bryant College, a small school in Rhode Island.

Combs initially was held for investigation of three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery. No one was seriously injured, and Combs was released from custody Monday night, jail records show.
