    BYU signee Charles West was shot in the arm Sunday evening while playing pickup basketball at a middle school in Dallas.

    West, a three-star running back out of Coppell, Texas, was playing basketball with several people when a man walked up to him and shot him in the upper left arm.

    According to police, five or six shots were fired and West fled the scene. He got about a half mile before he knocked on a door and asked for help.

    West was transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.

    Police said seven people witnessed the incident and a video also was circulating. Police were still trying to determine whether the video was authentic. Police have identified a person of interest, but have not yet released a name.

    P. Diddy isn't staring at felony charges after his incident with UCLA coaches.

    Los Angeles County prosecutors will not charge the rapper with a felony after his arrest on June 22. Diddy was arrested by UCLA police after he allegedly confronted UCLA strength coach Sal Alosi and threatened a member of UCLA's staff with a kettlebell.

    Diddy was reportedly unhappy that Alosi had removed his son, Justin Combs, from a team workout session. Combs is a junior cornerback for UCLA.

    From the Los Angeles Times:

    Ricardo Santiago, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, said prosecutors declined to file felony charges related to his June 22 arrest. The case was referred to the Los Angeles city attorney to decide whether Combs' conduct amounts to a misdemeanor. The prosecutors received the case Tuesday.
