Sean 'Diddy' Combs has been charged with multiple counts for attacking a college football coach who screamed at his son, Justin Combs, at the University of California, Los Angeles on Monday, June 22, 2015.

According to TMZ Sports, the wealthy hip-hop mogul was initially arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon because witnesses claimed he swung a kettlebell at Sal Alosi in his office.

Now, the site says officials later tacked on more charges including: 3 counts of assault w/ deadly weapon, 1 count of making terrorist threats and 1 count of battery.

Sources tell the site that after Diddy swung a kettlebell at strength and conditioning coach Alosi, he allegedly screamed out that he was "going to f**k him up."

Prosecutors believe the comments amounted to a "terrorist threat" so that's why he was hit with the charge in addition to 3 counts of assault with a deadly weapon. But as far as the case goes, one insider has revealed that important UCLA officials met early June 23 and the "charges will most likely be dropped but [Diddy] won't be allowed on the field anymore."

Diddy was eventually released on bail after posting $50k bond.
