Daddy has new charges leveled at him. According to
prosecutor's, Puff tried to pay key witnesses for their silence
in his bribery and gun possession trial. According to prosecutors,
Matthew "Scar" Allen and his brother felt threatened
concerns were retaliation by Mr. Combs and those surrounding
him against their mother, Shirley Allen,'' Matthew Bogdanos
wrote. ``I was also informed of several attempts by Mr. Combs
personally to pay for their silence.''
Bogdanos also released
a written statement by Matthew Allen in which Allen said he
saw Combs and associate Shyne firing guns in the nightclub after
``At just about
the same time one of the guys against the bar threw money at
Puffy...Shyne then dipped down and came back up with a gun and
started firing,'' Allen's sworn statement said. ``At that point,
Puffy had a gun in his right hand as I was running out. I could
see both Shyne and Puffy firing guns.''

they would ``throw business'' his way if he said nothing damaging
about him on the witness stand.
