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.

I guess this guy (diddy) doesn't give a damn about being with his kids. He is at nightclubs ALL the time. And don't reply defending him saying "He's on business", "He's performing", "He's marketing", etc.......at 3:AM, he should be home in bed protecting his children like a normal father should do. His Ego is more important to him than his children. I've only seen on picture of him on TMZ with him and his children. And they were sitting on a sidewalk. Woohooo.... Those children must have had a blast. With all that money and they get to play with a damn fire hydrant and throw rocks down a sewer drain cover.

A - TEAM

when a car is pulled over another car is not supposed to stop and wait. If someone is detained you are not supposed to just walk up to them when police are trying to deal with them. Police have to protect themselves and if a group or 6 ppl get out of a car and start walking towards them of course they are going to be worried. They should not have gotten out of the car, they were not the ones being questioned or detained.

Looked at the statement again and still don't see anything about tinted window--let stick to the fact and not make up extra things.Of course your going to pull your gun if five or six people come toward you.But the improper tags but sense it a rental it's ok does not may anysense to me.And of course you can see there skin color there a street light 20-30 feet apart keeping the street light.

P.S there 51 other cards in the deck who playing those.

Sounds like Diddy and Co. played dumb when they got stopped. Duhhhhhh.....here's news for them, cops HAVE TO watch out for what looks like potential trouble ...cops DO get shot at , { like, ahh, several cars sticking together like a school of sharks.....,nah that wouldn't make 'em worry.......?!, no matter the expensive cars. Plenty of criminals can afford luxury !}
and then anyone ,especially a GROUP of people coming AT officers ?! S-T-U-P-I-D. Diddy, you're STUPID. Next time you are out with your gang don't be surprised if you get mistaken for a a possible GANG, the way you act . Fricking idiot.

(Your mother's name) is a whore    

I love the article..."the police did not know Diddy was part of the group." Like that makes a difference. And as for Jean (can't tell if you are a boy or a girl)...the stop was for incorrect tags not for racial profiling. I guess "Real Criminals" never try to hide their identities by changing tags.
