Diddy's Assault Charges Dropped to Misdemeanor

Sean 'Diddy' Combs Fragrance Launch

I guess you can call Diddy lucky.  Not that he didn't break his neck at the BET Awards, but that the charges of assault with a deadly weapon are being dropped down to a misdemeanor.
If you remember, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs was arrested for assault at UCLA, where his son plays football. The alleged victim was  assistant football coach Sal Alosi, who apparently was on the receiving end of Combs throwing a kettlebell at him. 
Combs says he was defending himself and his son.  Hmmm...but if that's his story and he's sticking to it so be it.
According to Combs however, he was defending himself and his son. Not quite sure how one defends themselves with a kettlebell – and by hauling it at someone – but it’ll be interesting to hear how his lawyer defends the action.
Diddy was arrested and released after posting a bail of $50, 000 (Initially $160, 000). On Thursday, an L.A. County District Attorney’s spokesperson announced that the felony charges will not be pursued and that the case would be referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office instead, taking the charges down to a misdemeanor.
Not sure what the real story is here.  I guess there's only three people who know, Diddy, Alosi, and the man upstairs.
The talk is that Combs was not happy that his son was getting much play time and went to speak to the coach about it.  Other talk is that he was upset because the coach appeared to be yelling at his son throughout practice.  I thought that's what coaches do.
My thoughts, his son just isn't that great and that's why he doesn't get much time on the field.  In any case, let's hope this ends on a positive note for Diddy.
