A cop pulled a gun on hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs on Saturday during a routine traffic stop in Los Angeles, authorities told the New York Daily News.
A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy briefly brandished his weapon at Combs on the Sunset Strip after cops pulled over a car driven by a member of his entourage.
"A deputy pulled his firearm, fearing for his safety," a sheriff's department spokesman told the News. "The situation was deflated as quickly as it began."
Combs' spokeswoman Keesha Johnson told the News the cop did not pull the gun directly on the rapper, and stressed that the officers were "really respectful."
A member of Combs' entourage was stopped at 3:15 a.m. Saturday after cops noticed the rental car he was driving didn't have proper tags, the News reported.
The deputy called for backup after two cars stopped nearby as the deputy searched the vehicle, police said. One member of the group was detained when he became uncooperative, prompting six or seven others — including Combs — to advance toward the deputy, a source said.
