Sean “Diddy” Combs will have a hearing on Oct. 15 to resolve his most recent run-in with the law, according to

Back in June, Diddy was arrested by the authorities after confronting and attacking a member of the University of California, Los Angeles football coaching staff. Justin Combs, Diddy’s son who plays for the UCLA football team, is the one Diddy was trying to stick up for when the confrontation occurred. Diddy has also been accused of using a kettlebell as a weapon during the assault.

Diddy is facing one of three possible resolutions as a result of the hearing: being charged with a misdemeanor, having to undergo anger-management counseling or having to make a restitution payment.

A hearing such as the one set to take place in October rarely results in charges being filed, according to
