Update: Diddy To Turn Himself For Weekend Scuffle

Posted By on October 16, 2007

Hip Hop mogul, Diddy is expected to turn himself in to police today (October 16) and face charges over a physical altercation he had over the weekend, according to New York's Daily News.

As we previously reported, sources say P-Diddy was at the hot-spot SoHo nightspot, Kiosk, Saturday morning (Oct. 13) when he and an acquaintance began screaming about an ex-girlfriend of Diddy's, sources said.

After a heated round of swapping insults, things appeared to cool before Diddy and his bodyguards came back.

The alleged victim, 31-year-old Steven Acevedo told cops the mogul punched him in the mouth, knocking him to the ground, and then once he got up, Puffy struck him again.

One source said they overheard a bodyguard boast to Acevedo, "We won't shoot you. You can even hold our guns." The source also confirmed that no weapon was displayed and no witnesses saw any weapon.

Acevedo, went home after the scuffle and phoned police hours later. He and his lawyer declined to comment.

Sources say after Diddy turns himself in, he'll be fingerprinted and served with a desk appearance ticket for a misdemeanor assault charge.

Diddy's attorney, Benjamin Brafman, referred questions to a representative with Dan Klores Communications, who declined comment.

In related news, Puff appeared before a judge on Friday (October 13) about another alleged attack. As previously reported by SOHH, alleged victim Gerald Rechnitzer accused the mogul of jumping on him at Teddy's Night Club at the Roosevelt Hotel. He said Diddy yelled, "I'll smack flames out your @$$!"

The judge ordered that Diddy produce photographs of the rings he was wearing that night.
