Clarity to the Sean “Diddy” Combs UCLA assault will come in October.

Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Rob Wilcox said Wednesday that an Oct. 15 hearing has been set to determine if the hip-hop mogul will be charged with a misdemeanor, enroll in anger management, or be forced to pay restitution for an alleged June assault, according to The Associated Press.

Combs was arrested for reportedly swinging a kettlebell at a UCLA football coach. Combs’ son, Justin, is a player on the UCLA football team. He was initially booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, battery, and making criminal threats. No one was seriously harmed in the interaction. In July, it was determined he would not face felony charges.

“We are pleased that once again, an independent prosecutor has reviewed all the so-called evidence and rejected filing any criminal charges involving Sean Combs,” Diddy’s lawyer Mark Geragos wrote in a statement Wednesday, via the AP.
