District Attorney Declines to File Charges Against Diddy

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office declined Thursday to file felony charges against Sean "Diddy" Combs for a confrontation last month at the University of California, Los Angeles, where his son plays football. District attorney spokesman Ricardo Santiago said the office decided instead to turn the case over to the Los Angeles city attorney's office, which could file lesser misdemeanor charges. No charges have been brought against the 45-year-old hip-hop mogul for the confrontation on June 20 at UCLA's athletic facilities. Police said he wielded a piece of weight-room equipment called a kettlebell. The "Bad Boy for Life" rapper said he was defending himself and his son.
