No charges for Diddy in club attack

blige10puffdaddy.jpgTrouble-prone rapper Sean (Diddy) Combs dodged criminal charges for an alleged bathroom beatdown last month because the victim would not cooperate with prosecutors, officials said Tuesday.

Combs was initially accused of punching 31-year-old Steven Acevedo twice in the mouth last month in SoHo's swanky Kiosk club after trading insults over Acevedo's ex-girlfriend, who is dating the rapper.

During the alleged assault, Acevedo told cops, a member of Combs' entourage boasted, "We won't shoot you. You can even hold our guns," sources said.

No weapon was displayed, and no witnesses saw a gun, sources said.

Acevedo filed a police report, but yesterday Combs' lawyer said in a written statement prosecutors would not pursue the case.

Lawyer Benjamin Brafman commended police and prosecutors for a "thorough and very fair investigation ... and not allowing this private disagreement between two acquaintances to turn into a criminal charge."
