Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs allegedly faces one count of "making terrorist threats".

Yesterday news broke that the 45-year-old flipped out while watching his son Justin, 21, play for the Bruins football club at the UCLA Campus on Monday. Police were called to the scene, resulting in an arrest.

He is believed to have been released from jail on a $50,000 bond but now TMZ has reported the alleged charges the musician faces.

According to the website, he is now being hit with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery.

Things are thought to have kicked off when Diddy was on the sidelines, watching Justin's team practise. UCLA assistant coach Sal Alosi is thought to have started yelling at Justin, which Diddy didn't take kindly to.

According to TMZ, the rapper "grabbed" the coach to confront him, also picking up a metal kettlebell. He is also thought to have screamed threats at Alosi, including saying he would "f**k up" the coach, and the people who tried to break up the fight.

While an insider claims UCLA officials may drop the charges, it's thought the star will not be allowed on the field anymore.

Diddy was originally held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

“Shortly after 12:30 PM today, Sean Combs (also known as P. Diddy) was arrested at UCLA’s Acosta Athletic Training Complex on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, which was a kettlebell,” a press release from the university read. “No one was seriously injured and UCPD is investigating. Combs is expected to be transported to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Inmate Reception Center later this evening."
