Rapper Diddy has been arrested for allegedly attacking an American football coach with a kettlebell weight during an altercation, according to a report.

The incident allegedly took place at the athletic facility of UCLA where his son Justin Combs attends.

The 45-year-old rapper - real name Sean Combs - was taken into custody at the campus jail Monday afternoon, TMZ reports.

He was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and was later transferred by campus officers to LA County Jail according to the site, but sources associated to the rapper claim he was acting in self defense.

An insider connected to Diddy claims that he was not the aggressor and it all began during a workout the previous day where strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi was 'riding Justin badly' and eventually told him not to come back until the end of summer.

Then the mogul went to the Westwood campus today to talk to Alosi because he felt like the coach had an 'issue' with Justin and that meeting obviously did not go very well.

TMZ's source said the coach would not see him and the staff told him to leave, but the father insisted on going to the Alosi's office who had threatened to call security if he failed to make his exit.

The insider went on to claim that Diddy threatened to call police when the coach snapped and went after Diddy, who was forced to grab a kettlebell and hold it up in a defensive position. The source adds that the rapper did not attack with the intention of injuring the coach.

Another source gives a much different story as they claimed when Diddy was told to 'hang on' as the coach was on the phone, he grabbed a kettlebell and swung it which narrowly missed the coach.



Their source claimed if the attack had connected it would have killed Alosi. The incident is also reportedly on video.

According to the Twitter feed LA Times breaking news reporter Ryan Parker, the rapper was booked in LA County Jail on suspicion for felony assault with bail set at $160K according to records.

However it remains unclear what the actual bail price is as he later tweeted to his 13.6K followers: 'Called L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. and they say Diddy's bail is listed at $50K in their system. Unclear why Inmate Info Center says $160K.'

He posted $160K bail later that night according to ABC 7 News.

The charges against him include three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery.

This is not the first time Alosi has been at the centre of controversy as according to NFL.com, he was suspended without pay for the rest of the season, including playoffs, and fined $25K while employed by NFL team the New York Jets for an incident in December 2010.  

Alosi had committed a highly illegal move as a coach by sticking out his left knee on the sideline to trip Miami Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll, who was recovering a punt.

Diddy has had a few issues with violence himself including being acquitted of bribery and weapons-related charges in connection with a 1999 shooting at a New York nightclub. A jury cleared Combs of firing a weapon during the dispute that wounded three bystanders, as well as bribing his chauffeur to take the rap.

Combs was arrested in 1999 for his involvement in the beating of former Interscope executive Steve Stoute in New York. Combs apologized, the charges were reduced, and he was ordered to attend an anger management class.

Combs and Stoute have since mended their relationship, appearing on stage together at Cannes in 2013.
