Twins on the way

New York - Sean "Diddy" Combs and his longtime girlfriend, model Kim Porter, are expecting twins, the hip-hop mogul's spokeswoman confirmed to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

In an "emergency announcement" video posted Monday on his page, Combs (shown outdoors, flanked by the glamorous Porter) broke the news. "Two more Combs. Two! World, you're in trouble now," he said, calling himself a "champion."

The couple learned of the double pregnancy during a recent trip to the doctor after Combs thought Porter "looked kinda big for the amount of months she is."

Traffic pattern emerges

Honolulu - Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje of the hit TV series "Lost" was arrested on a traffic violation in Waikiki this weekend, police said.

The 39-year-old actor, who plays Mr. Eko on the ABC drama, was arrested early Saturday for disobeying a police officer and driving without a license. He posted $500 bail and is scheduled to appear in district court Sept. 26.

Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays a former African drug lord who has taken on the identity of a priest, is the third cast member of "Lost" to be arrested for traffic violations in Hawaii, where the series is shot.

In December 2005, Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros were arrested for drunken driving. Both pleaded guilty.
