An attorney for rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs responded to the federal government’s raid on two of his client’s homes this week by claiming that the government used too much “force.”

Agents with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) descended upon Combs’ homes in Los Angeles and Miami on Monday as part of a federal criminal investigation into allegations related to sex trafficking, sexual assault, and the solicitation and distribution of illegal narcotics and firearms, NBC News reported.

“Yesterday, there was a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr. Combs’ residences,” said attorney Aaron Dyer. “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.”

Dyer called the raid an “unprecedented ambush” — even though federal law enforcement routinely conducts raids with a show of force — and lambasted what he claimed was “an advanced, coordinated media presence” that he says has led the public to make premature judgements about his client.

He said that the raid was 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,” he said. “Mr. Combs is innocent and will continue to fight every single day to clear his name.”


DHS released a statement late on Monday following the raids confirming the law enforcement action without disclosing any further details.

“Earlier today, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New York executed law enforcement actions as part of an ongoing investigation, with assistance from HSI Los Angeles, HSI Miami, and our local law enforcement partners,” the statement said. “We will provide further information as it becomes available.”
