Diddy was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, which is a felony.

According to accounts, the incident was captured on video.
P. Diddy has been arrested for allegedly getting into a fight with a football coach at UCLA … where his son is on the team, TMZ Sports has learned.
We’re told Campus Police took the music mogul into custody early Monday afternoon. Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, is a defensive back on the team. We’re told the fight went down at the UCLA athletic facility.
One source says a strength and conditioning coach was screaming at Justin on the field during a strength and conditioning session. We’re told the coach “was riding Justin, screaming intensely at him.” Diddy watched the whole thing from the sideline.
At some point later, we’re told Diddy confronted the coach in his office and grabbed him. Diddy was arrested for assault.

This is a classical example of a privileged parent observing a coach get after a lazy player (in this case his own son) to get him to put out more effort. The father who probably didn’t like to see the boy verbally chastised in front of his peers decided to take matters into his own hands.
Grabbing a heavy weight to attack someone shows malice and lack of self-control. The father needs to spend some time in jail for his acts and the boy should be suspended from the school team.
