Music mogul Diddy is reportedly getting his week started off on the wrong foot by now having his publicized UCLA arrest escalated to “terrorist” level.
According to reports, Diddy is now accused of making terrorist threats during the Monday (June 22) attack.
Diddy was initially held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon because witnesses say he swung a kettlebell at Alosi
— but later that night, officials tacked on more charges:
— 3 counts of assault w/ deadly weapon
— 1 count of making terrorist threats
— 1 count of battery
It appears Diddy was allegedly screaming threats at Alosi — and the 5 or 6 people who rushed in to break up the fight. Diddy was eventually released on bail after posting $50k bond — but this case is far from over. (TMZ)
G-Unit head 50 Cent took to Instagram to playfully taunt Diddy’s attack this week.
“Yeah man, they said Puffy went Ciroc Coco on the coach with the kettle bell. All this sh*t started since Drake, man! He be wanting to f*ck everybody up! Yeah man, I’m counting the bail money right now so I can go get him before he f*ck me up. I’m scared to death around here.” (Instagram)
According to reports, the incident went down at California’s UCLA college campus earlier in the day.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Diddy allegedly attacked the coach with a kettlebell weight. He was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon … a felony. Our UCLA sources tell us Diddy confronted Strength and Conditioning Coach Sal Alosi while Alosi was on the phone. We’re told Diddy was told to “hang on” but he wasn’t having it and picked up a kettlebell and swung it, narrowly missing Alosi. One source said if Diddy had connected it could have killed Alosi.

Justin’s head coach issued a statement following the arrest.
“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation,” Bruins head 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.” (Statement)
