Justin Combs posted a photo with his famous father, Sean "Diddy" Combs, on Instagram on Tuesday, in what appears to be a response to his father’s arrest for assault.

“I thank God for having a father that’s always there for me,” Justin wrote. “Love you, pops!”

The elder Combs, 45, was arrested on Monday at a UCLA athletic facility and held for investigation into three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery. Justin Combs, 21, is a defensive back for UCLA’s football team, and while the details of Monday’s interaction are still unknown, a representative of Sean Combs has said that “any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son.”

By Monday evening, the music mogul was out on $50,000 bail, according to the Associated Press.

According to a statement from UCLA, the weapon used in the altercation on Monday was a kettle bell and no one was seriously hurt in the incident.

“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation,” said football coach Jim Mora in a statement. “This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved. While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”
