A lawyer for Sean "Puffy" Combs says she expects a judge to dismiss a traffic violation filed against the rapper in April. A pretrial hearing was postponed yesterday (June 14) on Combs' charge of making an improper lane change while he was riding a scooter along Ocean Drive, in Miami's popular South Beach area.
"I'm confident that once the judge sees the defense's evidence, the case will be dismissed," Combs' attorney, Jayne Weintraub, said. "There is no case." Weintraub said the hearing was continued because of the rap mogul's travel schedule. Circuit Judge Jeffrey Swartz has not set a trial date.
Police arrested Combs in April and charged him with driving with a suspended license after they pulled him over in Miami Beach. Weintraub said the charge was later dropped. She said a paperwork delay was the reason the rapper's driver's license showed up as suspended when police stopped him.
