UPDATE: P. Diddy was transported away from UCLA on Monday night. He was additionally charged with one charge of making terrorist threats and one charge of battery, according to a statement by UCLA.

EARLIER: P. Diddy was arrested by UCLA campus police Monday at 12:30 p.m. PT after an altercation involving a kettlebell at the school’s Acosta Athletic Training Complex, according to a university release. He is being charged with one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon. No one was seriously harmed, according to the release.

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

Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, has played for the UCLA Bruins since 2012. 

Diddy should be transferred to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Inmate Reception Center tonight, according to the release.

TMZ reports Diddy (aka Sean Combs) allegedly targeted strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi. 

A representative for Combs declined to comment.
