Police arrest man in Diddy’s mansion
A New York man has been arrested for a second time on charges that he broke into Sean “Diddy” Combs’ East Hampton mansion, where he apparently ate food, drank liquor and slept in one of the rap mogul’s bedrooms, according to an arrest report issued Friday.
Quamine Taylor, 30, of Queens, was arrested at the sprawling home on April 1. He is being held in the Suffolk County Jail on trespassing and petit larceny charges.
He has not posted $2,000 bail, and is due back in court next month.
According to the arrest report issued by the East Hampton police, Taylor entered the home through an unlocked basement door. He then “ate food, drank liquor and went to sleep in a bedroom.”
Police responded at that time to an alarm at the house, but Taylor apparently convinced an investigating officer that he had permission from Combs to be there.
That afternoon, a caretaker called police when she discovered Taylor there, telling officers he was not authorized to be in the home.
