Hip hop vs. environmental regs; regs win

The infamous Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, formerly "Puff Daddy" Combs, was about to become the target of an arrest warrant. What did he do wrong? Murder? Drugs? Nope. The rap star was charged with illegal mowing.

Combs allegedly mowed down protected sea grass and other water front vegetation on his Long Island property. However, before the local judge issued the warrant, Combs' lawyers and the local prosecutor reached an agreement.

Combs has agreed to restore the sea grass and other plants to a more or less natural state. Reportedly, this may set him back more than $70,000.
