Sean 'Diddy' Combs arrested for assault with deadly kettlebell

Music mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs was arrested last Monday at a UCLA athletic facility, where he was apparently working out with his son, who plays on the university's football team.

Virginia man acquitted of murder and related charges

When someone is charged with a crime there are several ways in which the matter might be resolved. One of those ways is via a trial. In the course of this type of legal proceeding both sides have the opportunity to present evidence that supports their side. This evidence takes multiple forms including physical evidence and witness testimony. The case will be decided depending on what is presented at trial. A murder trial in Virginia was recently resolved this way.

A man living in another state who did this faced criminal repercussions and his case eventually made its way to the Supreme Court. A decision was recently reached regarding the case.
