Diddy’s assault victim doesn’t want him to face jail

Steven Acevedo told the cops that Combs punched him twice in the mouth at SoHo’s Kiosk club.

However, Acevedo’s attorney Mark Heller has now revealed that his client wants to withdraw his complaint.

Steven Acevedo “is not a vindictive, mean spirited individual. He is not motivated to propel Sean Combs into jail,” The New York Daily News quoted Heller, as saying.

According to the sources, the two men allegedly traded insults over Acevedo’s ex-girlfriend, who is dating Combs.

They also said that during the enquiry, Acevedo told cops, a member of Combs’ entourage boasted, “We won’t shoot you. You can even hold our guns”.

However, no weapon was displayed, and no witnesses saw a gun.

The sources also added that Acevedo filed a police report, which could lead to Combs being arrested and issued a desk appearance ticket for misdemeanour assault.

Combs’ attorney Benjamin Brafman has now revealed that the two men are interested in out-of-court settlement.

Heller also said that his 31-year-old client was not out to make a quick buck.

He said that if the Manhattan district attorney requires him to testify in a case against Combs, “he will have no choice but to fulfill his duty”.

Police sources have revealed that the issue would likely be settled privately, with Acevedo taking back his complaint. (ANI)
