Burglar Sentenced After Sleeping In Diddy's Bed, Drinking His Liquor

RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (CBSMiami/AP) — Quamine Taylor must live by the words "go big or go home."

Going home is what he should have done. Instead, the Queens, N.Y. man boldly broke into Diddy's.

He took a self-guided tour of the rap mogul's mansion, treating himself to Diddy's liquor, smoking his cigars and even sleeping in his bed.

According to the New York Post (, Taylor was sentenced Thursday in Suffolk County court to time served after being unable to post $2,000 bail following his April arrest.

Taylor also was ordered to stay away from Combs' homes, and for good reason: the man previously broke into Diddy's home in June 2001.

He was arrested at the sprawling home on April 1 after spending nearly 24 hours there. He was charged on trespassing and petit larceny charges.

He had said he had hoped to stay at the house for several days.
