(Newser) – Hip-hop music mogul Diddy was arrested this afternoon on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles, where his son is on the football team, police said. Diddy, 45, whose real name is Sean Combs, was arrested at UCLA's Acosta Athletic Training Complex on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon shortly after 12:30pm, according to a statement from campus police. The deadly weapon was a kettlebell, which is used by athletes in weight training.

No one was seriously injured and campus police are investigating. Officials did not identify the victim of the assault, or say what led to it. Combs' son Justin Combs is a redshirt junior defensive back on the UCLA football team, which has been practicing on campus. He has played in just a handful of games in his three years with the team.
