Combs’ son Justin Combs is a redshirt junior defensive back on the UCLA football team, which has been practicing on campus. He has played in just a handful of games in his three years with the team.

Football coach Jim Mora thanked his staff in the statement for their professionalism in handling the situation.

“This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved,” Mora said. “While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”

Combs’ representatives did not immediately respond to requests for details or comment.

The arrest was first reported by TMZ.
