Diddy’s son Justin Combs arrested for DUI in Los Angeles, reports say

Justin Dior Combs, the son of Sean “Diddy” Combs and Misa Hylton, was arrested Sunday morning in Los Angeles for driving under the influence.

Combs, 29, was taken into custody by the Los Angeles Police Department around 9 a.m. PDT and booked for a misdemeanor, online inmate records seen by the USA TODAY show.

He was released at 12:30 p.m. PDT on his own promise, meaning he did not have to post the $5,000 bond set on the condition that he appear in court upon request.

Combs’ arrest took place during a traffic stop in Beverly Hills. “(Officers) observed the driver possibly under the influence of unknown alcohol or drugs,” an LAPD officer told Fox News on Sunday. “The investigation revealed that he was under the influence.”

Officers observed Justin running a red light leading to a traffic stop, the LAPD told Entertainment Tonight. “He was submitted to a sobriety test which he failed,” a spokesperson said.

USA TODAY has contacted the LAPD and representatives for Combs.

Justin’s mother, Hylton, apparently reacted to the arrest on Instagram on Sunday in a series of now-deleted posts on her story. “I’m not protecting anyone anymore, just my son. And ALL the kids,” the celebrity stylist and designer wrote. “The statement ‘a fish rots from the top down’ means that in addition to being a major contributing factor to the success of a family or organization, leadership is also the root cause of its failure and his demise. The truth will set you free.”

“Act BAD BAD boy, I used to want to be a BAD Girl, I chose to be a QUEEN Tried and true. I’m not perfect but I’m INTENTIONAL,” she continued, a reference to Diddy’s single “Act Bad” featuring Town Girls and Fabulous.

“I should have kept my child with me,” Hylton added.

Combs is the executive producer of “The Crew League,” a televised celebrity basketball tournament, and “Respectfully Justin,” a limited reality series starring Justin Laboy. The 29-year-old has also dabbled in acting, making two appearances in ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ earlier this year.

Before entering show business, Combs played football for UCLA.
