Probe into P Diddy police escort

Sean 'P Diddy' Combs was escorted from a concert

Police in the US have launched an inquiry into why Sean "P Diddy" Combs was given a police escort after a concert.

The New York City police department says the assistance by a sergeant for one city block was unauthorised and is under investigation.

Police say the Friday night escort was requested by the hip-hop star's dry cleaner, who asked several officers before the sergeant agreed.

One police van escorted Diddy from the Hammerstein Ballroom to just near the entrance for the Lincoln Tunnel. The department says claims that several officers escorted the music star to New Jersey are false.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says security is the only reason anyone should get a police escort.

A representative for Diddy made no comment.

Police officials in Washington DC recently attracted attention when they gave actor Charlie Sheen an escort before a performance.

This is an ideal time to make plans for the future. If you've been thinking about getting a better job, start getting the necessary training. It may take longer than you expect to reach your goal, but don't let that deter you. The best things in life involve an element of sacrifice. A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
