District attorney declines to file charges against Diddy

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles County district attorney's office declined Thursday to file felony charges against Sean "Diddy" Combs for a confrontation last month at the University of California, Los Angeles, where his son plays football.

District attorney spokesman Ricardo Santiago said the office decided instead to turn the case over to the Los Angeles city attorney's office, which could file lesser misdemeanor charges.

No charges have been brought against the 45-year-old hip-hop mogul for the confrontation June 20 at UCLA's athletic facilities in which police said he wielded a piece of weight-room equipment called a kettlebell.

In a statement Monday, coach Jimbo Fisher announced Johnson's immediate dismissal. The quarterback had been suspended after the June 24 assault.

In the security camera video released by the State Attorney's Office, it appears the woman and Johnson were trying to get a position at the bar, and Johnson jostled her.
