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.

Diddy is the biggest boil on the world of stardom. This guy can't get enough of himself, so I'm sure he's reading this. If you are, come on down to Long Beach and I'll kick your talentless rear-- Oh, yeah, that's right. You only fight when you have a group of 20 people there to back your wuss ass up. You can't act, your music is a joke, and you're a wuss who needs an entourage to constantly surround you so everyone will know that his holiness is in their presence. Man, society sure is getting sickening.

Sounds like the cops did their job perfectly. Why people feel the need to interfere in a police stop is beyond me.
Diddy's entourage overreacted. I'm Asian and I've been pulled over for expired tags. What's the problem? I didn't think anyone was racist.

Believe me the cops knew exactly who they were pulling over, they just want to let rich blacks to know that they can still be harrassed.

A bunch of idiots. No, this wasn't racial profiling, but as an entertainer there are times he is REQUIRED to be out at 3am. How do you think he became & remains so successful if a bit egocentric?

OMG once they recognized it was "Sean Combs!" so you mean to tell me that if it was any other normal black males, it would've been some sort of confortation?

Jean, your an idiot!! If you would've read the story, you would know why the vehicle was pulled over in the first place - the tags were bad! It has nothing to do with the occupants. People like you are always questioning how police deal with various situations. Put yourself in the shoes of the police, then you may not question everything they do. Granted there are some bad cops out there, but not every cop that becomes part of a news story is a bad cop. Have a open mind and consider all the facts (at least know all the facts) before judging someone, jackass!
