The rap mogul went on Hot 97 this morning and claimed he and the officer "worked it out" after Diddy called the guy a "mother f**ker" Sunday night.
Diddy explained, "It was just a little misunderstanding ... miscommunication." He added, "Me and the officer, we worked it out ... things were a little aggressive for me, which I'm not really used to. "
Diddy also claimed the cop was a plain-clothed police officer -- but the NYPD tells us that's just not true.
