Yesterday, we reported that Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly attacking a UCLA football coach for shouting at his son during a strength and conditioning session.
Today, new details are emerging, and things do not look good for the man once known as Puff Daddy.
For starters, the victim has been identified as Sal Alosi. NFL fans might remember Alosi for a bizarre incident that took place in 2010 while he was working for the New York Jets.
Alosi tripped a Miami Dolphins player who was running down the sidelines during a punt return. He was suspended for the remainder of the season, fined, and eventually drummed out of the league.
Of course, Alosi’s sketchy past does little to support Diddy’s claim that he was justified in attacking the man with a 90-pound kettlebell.
On the contrary, now that Alosi has been identified as the alleged victim, the feeling on social media is that Combs attacked a longtime coaching veteran, and not some overzealous graduate assistant, as some had previously assumed.
Of course, Diddy’s got bigger problems than the court of public opinion these days.
TMZ is reporting that Combs is facing terrorist threat charges as a result of his expletive-laced tirade against Alosi and the 5 or 6 people who broke up the fight.
In addition to that charge (which is mighty serious on its own) Combs is facing three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of battery. The hip hop mogul was released late last night on $50,000 bond.
Sounds like Diddy should’ve stuck to beating up Drake. Everyone seemed to be pretty okay with that.
