It looks like DIDDY will be off the hook for that alleged assault on a UCLA football coach. Apparently the staff at UCLA just wants to move on, although there's a video of at least part of the incident, so Diddy could be prosecuted even if the coaching staff doesn't testify. Diddy reportedly feels that UCLA coach Sal Alosi has psychologically damaged his son Justin Combs and that the coach publicly humiliated him on numerous occasions. When Justin came home from practice and told daddy Diddy he was ordered to leave the field and not return for the summer, it was the last straw and Diddy had a talk with the coach, which led to the altercation.

An unnamed patient has won a lawsuit against anesthesiologist Tiffany Ingham, who mocked him during surgery.
