Rapper Diddy’s eldest son, Justin Combs, was arrested Sunday for driving under the influence in Los Angeles, TMZ reports.

Law enforcement officials said a police officer observed a vehicle running a red light near Beverly Hills at around 8 a.m. and proceeded to pull the driver over, according to TMZ. Combs was reportedly found to be behind the wheel, and a preliminary conversation and investigation provided enough probable cause for suspecting he had been driving under the influence, according to the outlet.

An eyewitness reportedly captured a portion of the alleged incident on video.

It’s not known if Combs was put through any sobriety testing, or what his demeanor was like police when allegedly arrested him. His blood alcohol level at the time of the reported arrest has not yet been shared publicly, according to TMZ.

Justin Combs, 29, is the the child of music mogul and entertainment giant Diddy (real name Sean Combs). He was reportedly slapped with a misdemeanor DUI charge with bond set at $5,000, and was eventually released on his own recognizance, according to The U.S. Sun.
