Diddy’s Attorney Slams “Military Level Force” House Raids

Lyndon Abioye |

Diddy’s attorney has released a statement about the raids on his L.A. and Miami homes.

The raids were executed by Homeland Security “in connection” with an ongoing federal sex trafficking investigation.

“Yesterday, there was a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr. Combs’ residences. There is no excuse for the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated. Mr. Combs was never detained but spoke to and cooperated with authorities. Despite media speculation, neither Mr. Combs nor any of his family members have been arrested nor has their ability to travel been restricted in any way,” the statement reads.

Diddy was seen pacing back and forth at a private Miami airport. His private jet was grounded in the Caribbean. There has been some speculation that the private jet could have been used to get the evidence out of the country.

HSI did not say if the jet was searched.

“This unprecedented ambush – paired with an advanced, coordinated media presence – leads to a premature rush to judgment of Mr. Combs and is nothing more than a witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits. There has been no finding of criminal or civil liability with any of these allegations. Mr. Combs is innocent and will continue to fight every single day to clear his name.”
