Diddy won't be charged for kettlebell incident


The story of the monthoffseasonyear millennium broke last week as Diddy was arrested for allegedly attacking UCLA strength coach Sal Alosi with a kettlebell after Alosi kicked the rap mogul's son, Justin Combs, out of a workout for poor effort.

The Diddy camp responded by claiming self-defense. Of course they did.

"The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate," Combs Enterprises rep Nathalie Moar said. "What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son."

And now, realizing they have absolutely nothing to gain from this, the UCLA staff decided not to pursue the allegation further, leading to the Los Angeles District Attorney's office declining to press charges, according to Variety. “We are thankful that the District Attorney rejected Felony charges in this matter,” Diddy's lawyer Mark Geragos said in a statement. “This case never should have been part of the criminal justice system to begin with.”

Here's hoping the two sides can make up by letting Diddy sign Jim Mora to a record deal.
