New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg went on a tirade after finding out that the NYPD gave the rapper Sean “Diddy”Combs a police motorcade to make a $75,000 event in New Jersey. The mayor launched a probe into the incident, stating that it is unacceptable for anyone to receive police assistance with taxpayer dollars. Officers from NYPD internal affairs went to the Midtown South precinct to go through logs, records and work schedules to find out who was responsible for what happened. They are also reviewing videotapes from 35th Street and Times Square to find out more information.
"After being repeatedly rebuffed by police officers on the street — and a police lieutenant at the station house — a dry cleaner claiming to represent Sean Combs [Diddy] apparently prevailed upon a sergeant to direct a police van driven by a police officer to escort Combs," the NYPD said.
The mayor didn’t take this lightly. "The bottom line is the Police Department should treat everybody exactly the same. If you don’t get a police escort, P. Diddy shouldn’t,” he said.
