Sean “Diddy” Combs and Misa Hylton’s son, Justin Dior Combs, was arrested on Sunday morning in Los Angeles for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Justin, who is 29 years old, was taken into custody by the Los Angeles Police Department at around 9 a.m. PDT. According to online inmate records viewed by USA TODAY, he was booked for a misdemeanor offense.
However, Justin was released later in the day, around 12:30 p.m. PDT, on his own recognizance. This means that he didn’t have to pay the $5,000 bond that had been set, but he is required to appear in court when summoned.
The arrest took place during a routine traffic stop in Beverly Hills. The LAPD officers who conducted the stop noticed signs that Justin might be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Subsequent investigation confirmed that he was indeed driving while intoxicated.
In an interview with Fox News, an LAPD officer stated that Justin was observed running a red light, which prompted the traffic stop. He was then subjected to a sobriety test, which he failed, leading to his arrest.
Representatives for Justin Combs and the LAPD have been contacted for further comments or details regarding the incident.
Justin’s mother, Misa Hylton, appeared to respond to the arrest on her Instagram story. In a series of now-deleted posts, she expressed her intent to protect only her son and all children, while also reflecting on the concept that “a fish rots from the head down.” She emphasized the importance of truth and stated that she should have kept her child with her.
Aside from being the son of Sean “Diddy” Combs and Misa Hylton, Justin Combs is involved in several ventures. He is the executive producer of “The Crew League,” a televised celebrity basketball tournament, as well as “Respectfully Justin,” a limited reality series in collaboration with Justin Laboy. Additionally, Justin has made appearances in the television show “Power Book II: Ghost” this year. Before entering the entertainment industry, he played football for UCLA.
It is essential to remember that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal and poses significant risks to both the driver and others on the road. Incidents like this serve as reminders of the importance of making responsible decisions and prioritizing safety when operating a vehicle.
