A spokesman for Diddy said, “…any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son.”

Suge Knight was arrested in in a fatal hit-and-run case early this year.

Prosecutors have decided not to file felony charges against Diddy, Ricardo Santiago, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, said. Santiago commented, “The case was referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office for misdemeanor filing considerations.”
