Diddy ‘buried UCLA assault mess’

Diddy’s son Justin Combs is practicing on the field once again with teammates after his father was arrested for assaulting a UCLA Bruins coach in June.

The 45-year-old hip hop mogul was taken into custody last June after confronting Sal Alosi, the strength coach for his son Justin’s Bruins football team at the University of California Los Angeles.

And TMZ reports all is well again, as the conflict has been resolved.

“We're told head coach Jim Mora met with Justin last week to hash things out once and for all, and move forward… so the junior cornerback could get back to practice,” the website writes.

Apparently Justin is now practicing on the field with his teammates again. It was previously claimed the young man was banned from practice for the summer by strength coach Sal, which is why Diddy stepped into the equation in the first place. Apparently the concerned father wanted answers from Sal as to why his son was barred from preparing for the next season with his teammates. But the conversation didn’t go well, as Sal accused Diddy of picking up a kettleball threateningly, which led to him being charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery.

Variety reported last month the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office decided not to file formal charges against the Bad Boy Records music mogul, but the case is now being reviewed by the Los Angeles City Attorney, which will determine whether or not to press misdemeanour charges against him.

Meanwhile TMZ reports although Justin is back on the field, Diddy is not allowed to come to any practices for the foreseeable future.

But the practice ban doesn’t seem to be upsetting Diddy in any manner, as the star wrote a supportive message on Instagram Wednesday.

“GO BRUINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (sic),” Diddy wrote in a caption attached to a pic of Justin showing off some moves on the football field.
