"What is being reported in the media is inaccurate," the statement reads. "Mr. Combs is not going to be arrested today. We are hopeful that this matter will be resolved without the filing of any criminal charges, as this was a disagreement among acquaintances, not a criminal assault."
On Monday, a representative for the New York Police Department confirmed to MTV News that an incident took place early Saturday morning inside Kiosk, a store located in New York's Soho neighborhood that hosts parties by night, and that the matter was being investigated by detectives. Police would not confirm that the incident was an alleged assault that may have involved Combs.
An eyewitness to the incident spoke with MTV News on Monday and described what they saw. According to the witness, the incident occurred around 3:30 a.m., soon after Combs arrived with his entourage at Kiosk. Before entering the club, the witness claims Combs spoke briefly with Acevedo, a discussion that was characterized as "intense." Soon afterward, both men entered the club's main room, where they were whisked away to separate tables.
Minutes later, the witness claims Combs "aggressively marched" over to Acevedo's table and confronted him. The two men exchanged heated words, and the witness said Combs struck Acevedo with two consecutive, rapid punches. Members from both entourages immediately intervened and separated the two. Both Acevedo and Combs exited the club soon after without further incident.
