Singer Jennifer Lopez and producer Sean "Puffy" Combs were arrested Monday afternoon in New York and charged with criminal possession of a weapon and of stolen property, according to the Associated Press, in connection with a shooting at Club NY, a Times Square-area nightclub. Neither Lopez nor Combs were injured, but two men and a woman suffered minor injuries to their faces and shoulders. Lopez and Combs were at the midtown Manhattan club when gunfire erupted about 2:20 a.m., said a police spokeswoman. They drove away, but were stopped by police after running a red light and a gun -- which police said was reported stolen in Georgia -- was allegedly found in their vehicle, AP said. Driver Wardel Fenderson and bodyguard Anthony Jones were also charged with criminal possession of a weapon and stolen property, according to AP.
