LOS ANGELES–Sean Combs says a Los Angeles sheriff’s deputy pulled over members of his entourage and briefly drew his weapon but was professional and respectful during a weekend traffic stop.

A spokesman for Combs says the deputy never pointed his gun at Combs and that officers were “very respectful” early Saturday.

Diddy was traveling on Sunset Boulevard in a seven-car convoy when a deputy pulled over one of the vehicles. Combs was not in the car that was stopped for having an expired registration tag.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore says the deputy became concerned when several men approached the vehicle. The deputy holstered his gun, and the situation quickly cooled down.

No citations were issued because the car was a rental.
