First, D.C. police launched an investigation into the use of a high-speed
escort for Charlie Sheen during his appearance last week in the nation’s capital. Now the New York Police Department is conducting a similar investigation into the possible deployment of an escort for P. Diddy.
The Associated Press, via the Wall Street Journal, reports that the NYPD is attempting to determine whether the hip-hop mogul recently received a police escort while heading from a concert to a club appearance.
On the D.C. front, The Washington Post’s Paul Duggan recently confirmed that Live Nation, the promoter of Sheen’s concert tour, paid $445.68 for the police escort that helped whisk the former “Two and a Half Men” star from Dulles International Airport to Constitution Hall. The AP reported today that D.C. police also provided an escort last weekend to the New York Rangers, who lost a Saturday playoff game to the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center.
City officials in the District and New York say such escorts are not supposed to be used for celebrities. So can we assume that no one will dare request such an escort during this star-studded White House Correspondents’ Dinner week?
