More details are starting to emerge from the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office where they are expected to pursue felony charges against Sean “Diddy” Combs, according to Tracy Pierson of Bruin Report Online after he was arrested Monday for allegedly hitting UCLA strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi on Monday with a kettlebell, according to TMZ.

He faces three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery.

The altercation began with Alosi yelling at Diddy’s son Justin Combs and kicked him out of the workout. Later Diddy confronted Alosi in his office and the assault took place and there is security footage that showed the attack that forced the UCPD to arrest Diddy, but his reps say he acted in self-defense.

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

”We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed,” Combs Enterprises said.

Combs has a July 13 court date and was released on bond.
