Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested this morning, but if you’re thinking the hip hop mogul got wrapped in something even remotely gangsta (like, say, beating up Drake), think again. 

Mr. Combs’ son Justin is a defensive back on the UCLA football team, and apparently Diddy is in full helicopter-parent mode these days and has taken to attending the team’s practices and workouts.

Witnesses say things started to go awry at today’s strength and conditioning session when an assistant began shouting at Justin.

This didn’t jibe with Diddy, who proceeded to get in the coach’s face.

Things escalated from there, and Combs’ is now facing assault with a deadly weapon charges after allegedly attacking the coach with a kettlebell weight.

As of Monday evening, Comb remains in custody at UCLA’s on-campus jail.

“No one was seriously injured and UCPD is investigating,” said UCLA in a statement. “Combs is expected to be transported to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Inmate Reception Center later this evening.”

This is the second violent incident that Diddy has been involved with in the past six months. Back in December Drake was hospitalized after allegedly scuffling with Combs outside of a club in Miami.

There’s no word on yet on when Diddy will receive a bail hearing and be released from custody.
