After his Los Angeles and Miami homes were raided by law enforcement on Monday (Mar. 25) following his involvement in an ongoing federal sex traffic investigation, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ attorney, Aaron Dyer, sent Billboard a statement calling the raid an “unprecedented ambush” and labeling the takedowns against his client as a “witch hunt.”

“Yesterday, there was a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr. Combs’ residences,” Dyer tells Billboard on Tuesday (March 26). “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.”

Dyer adds that Diddy and his family haven’t been arrested and can travel freely even after yesterday’s incident.

“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. This unprecedented ambush — paired with an advanced, coordinated media presence — leads to a premature rush to judgment of Mr. Combs and is nothing more than 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. Mr. Combs is innocent and will continue to fight every single day to clear his name.”

Executed by Homeland Security, cops swarmed Diddy’s LA residence, and footage showed his sons, Justin and Christian Combs detained outside of the property. Earlier today, it was reported that Diddy agreed to sell his stake in Revolt TV. The news comes months after he stepped down from his chairman position amid sexual assault allegations. According to TMZ, Combs sold his remaining shares to an undisclosed buyer, and the deal was reportedly finalized this week.
