*Sean “P. Diddy” Combs pulled a Charlie Sheen and somehow got a police escort to usher him from a concert to an afterparty in New York City – a ride that lasted just one city block, and is now under investigation.
NYPD says a sergeant allowed the Friday night police escort without authorization, according to the AP. Police say it was requested by the rap mogul’s dry cleaner, who asked several officers before the sergeant in question agreed.
One police van escorted Combs from the Hammerstein Ballroom to just near the entrance for the Lincoln Tunnel. The department says claims that several officers escorted Combs to New Jersey are false.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg says security is the only reason anyone should get a police escort.
Meanwhile, police officials in Washington, D.C., recently attracted attention when they gave actor Charlie Sheen an escort before a performance.
