Cops to Diddy: Freeze!

8/23/2008 9:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Diddy was introduced to the barrel of a gun early this morning.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ at around 3:00 AM, Puff Daddy, aka Diddy, aka Sean "Puffy" Combs, aka Sean Combs, was being driven by an entourage on the Sunset Strip. One of the cars didn't have proper tags and deputies from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department made the stop.

We're told the other three cars in the entourage stopped as well. It's Sheriff Dept. policy to call for backup when other cars linger at a traffic stop. Backup arrived and the driver of the second car became "extremely uncooperative," to the point he had to be detained. At that point, Diddy and the remaining five or six members of the entourage got out of their cars and began walking toward the detained member of their posse.

That's when one deputy drew his weapon, not knowing what the dudes were up to. We're told at the time the weapon was drawn, deputies did not know Diddy was part of the group.

Ultimately things became peaceful, the detained guy was let go and everyone lived happily ever after ... for the rest of the night. BTW, the guy who was stopped -- turns out he was in a rental car so he wasn't ticketed.

Does anyone ever stay home at night with their kids? Do they really have to be out bar hopping every weekend, just waiting to get shot,in a fight or arrested. Seriously try staying home once in a while and do something with all the kids you made so like Chris Rock says "they won't be robbing me in ten years"!!!!

Wow Racial profiling at it's best. Ass hole cops. Why don't they pull over some real criminals for a change? Nice cars and black occupants should not make them automatic potential crime suspects, no matter what time of day it is.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be slut-whores    

Sigh. Another missed opportunity.

Too bad Diddy didn't put his hand in his pocket as they were approaching the police.

Jean, Your comment makes no sense. How would the cops be able to tell the color of the skin of the people who were in those vehicles at 3:AM with dark tinted windows. You can't tell if they are black or white. They stopped them due to improper tags. Get the facts straight. Either way, bullets should have been fired. I'm sick of Diddy. His burger king commercial is so arrogant and wishful thinking on diddy's part. Lets compare him to bill gates to is a multi-billionaire....Do you EVER see Bill Gates flaunting ANYTHING? Nope...you never see him anywhere.....except for donating millions and millions of dollars to charity. The reason, He's White and has very Good Self Esteem. He doesn't need to show anything off.

He may be educated but he is still ignorant about some things. His attitude is far too self important - who cares if he has money when he acts like an imbecile that thinks the world revolves around him. If it had been even just a couple of men of ANY color getting out of several cars, walking towards cops, guns would have been drawn so stop the racial profiling whining. There is simply no excuse for people to act this way.

WHO CARES IF IT WAS HIM IN THE CAR....PROCEDURE IS PROCEDURE.

If it was me, and a bunch of guys (black, white or whatever) came walking towards me in this situation, I would do the exact same.
