“Hiccups happen in life,” said Quincy Brown.
The DOPE movie star is showing support for his stepdad Sean Combs, who was arrested on June 22 at a UCLA athletic facility and held for investigation on three counts of assault: one with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery.
According to a UCLA press release, the weapon used was a kettlebell and “no one was seriously injured.” Diddy was out on $50,000 bail that night.
The details of the interaction are all very vague, however one of Combs’ representatives claims that “any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son.”
“We’re supporting the family, supporting my dad. And my dad’s got a big performance this year,” he said.
A source told PEOPLE that the incident occurred after Diddy’s son Justin Combs, 21, was kicked out of the first day of UCLA football practice. He went home to tell his father, who was (clearly) less than thrilled by the news and returned to confront coach Sal Alosi. Tracy Pierson, publisher of Scout‘s Bruin Report Online website that covers the university’s football program, said Combs was not one to typically argue with the coaches. He said that from his understanding, they had previously gotten along just as well as any of the other parents had.
Football coach Jim Mora called the incident “unfortunate,” and said he will refrain from further comment while UCPD continues to review the case.
Meanwhile, it’s clear Diddy’s family is standing firmly behind him.
