While the facts of the recent fracas between Diddy and UCLA strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi remain unclear, Alosi hasn’t been free from controversy during his career. And that’s not just a reference to 2010 the Jets tripping scandal for which Alosi took the fall.
TMZ reports that it has obtained a copy of a letter to the Jets from a chiropractor who claimed that Alosi and Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis got into a “fistfight” during the same year as the fateful fall of Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll, who strayed from the field of play and ran into a phalanx of bodies aligned on the other side of the white stripe bordering the gridiron. The letter also claims, per TMZ, that Alosi engaged in a “pattern of abusive behavior and the Jets needed to get him under control.”
TMZ contends that the letter has been sent to Diddy’s camp for use in connection with the looming prosecution arising from a claim that he assaulted Alosi. But it’s hard to see how any of that is relevant to the present case; if Diddy assaulted Alosi (after allegedly threatening to “f–k him up“), it doesn’t matter whether Alosi was being a jerk to Diddy.
It possibly will matter if Alosi was being a jerk to Diddy’s son. Per a separate TMZ report, Diddy’s camp contends that Alosi was bullying Diddy’s son, Justin Combs. If a defense can somehow be fashioned based on provocation by Alosi of Justin Combs, Alosi’s history could potentially become relevant.
