Diddy Cleared in Recent Nightclub Assault

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has avoided charges in yet another nightclub incident. According to Combs’ attorney, Benjamin Brafman, the mogul will not face criminal charges for allegedly punching a man after an argument at SoHo hotspot, Kiosk, on October 13.

“Both Mr. Combs and I are pleased that the DA’s office and the police department conducted a very thorough investigation and came to this conclusion,” Brafman said. Throughout the investigation, both Brafman and Combs have claimed that the incident was merely a “private disagreement between two acquaintances.”

The alleged victim, Steven Acevedo, has also downplayed the matter by requesting that the hip-hop mogul not be jailed while insisting that he was assaulted. “Steven Acevedo was definitely violated without legal provication in the presence of witnesses. Had he chosen to vigorously pursue his right, he surely would have prevailed in a court of law,” Acevedo’s lawyer, Mark Heller, said in a statement to MTV.

If arrested and charged, Combs could’ve faced a third-degree misdemeanor assault charge.
