Rap mogul Sean "Puffy" Combs was released on $10,000 bail late Monday after spending a day behind bars for weapons possession in the wake of a shooting at a Times Square dance club. Combs, 30, was arrested Monday after police allegedly found a stolen pistol in his car as he and actress-singer Jennifer Lopez, 29, left Club NY where two men and a woman were wounded in the 2 a.m. shooting. (Two of the victims were in stable condition yesterday, and the third refused medical attention.) "I do not own a gun," a weary-looking Combs told reporters after being arraigned on weapons charges. "I do not carry a gun. The charges and allegations against me are 100% false." Combs was ordered to appear back in court on Feb. 14. Lopez was also arrested, but prosecutors dropped charges against her "based on the evaluation of the evidence," said Wayne Brison, a spokesman for the Manhattan district attorney's office.
