OUT ON BAIL
Sean Combs was released from jail after being accused of assault with a weight-room kettlebell at the athletic facilities of the University of California, L.A., where his son Justin plays football. Diddy, 45, was freed late Monday night after posting bail, several hours after his arrest, jail records showed. University police allege three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery. The man he is accused of assaulting is Justin’s coach Sal Alosi, a former NY Jets conditioning coach who was suspended in 2010 after tripping ex Miami Dolphins player Nolan Carroll on the side lines.
