Quamine Taylor, 30, of Queens, has a history of mental illness, his mother told The New York Post. He is charged with second-degree criminal trespass and petit larceny.
NEW YORK - Look but don’t touch. Better yet, look from a distance and don’t trespass in the home of global superstar Sean “Diddy” Combs, drink his liquor and wear his clothes.
Twice in a decade.
That’s what Queens man Quamine Taylor has been arrested and charged with doing, according to The New York Post.

The New York tabloid reports that Taylor, 30, found an unlocked basement door and made himself at home in Diddy's ritzy East Hampton mansion while the rap mogul was away.
Funnier still, it was the second time this had happened. Police said Taylor had done the same thing ten years ago. In an interview at Suffolk County Jail, Taylor was quoted as telling The Post, “I’ve actually been going to the house from time to time since 2001.”
“I stay there a lot but Sean gets funny sometimes about me staying there.”
The Post said Taylor had downed fancy liquor and food before being found the following day on April 1 by a caretaker.
Taylor’s mother said matters for her son were less than comical: “He has a long history of mental illness, and he has been off his meds for a while. We have been trying to get him some help.”

A Diddy spokesman declined to comment, according to The Post.
According to a police report obtained by E! Online (PDF), after Taylor was discovered by police, "the officers escorted the defendant upstairs to allow him to get dressed and discovered he had taken a train out from New York City, took a cab to the residence, entered through an unlocked basement door, consumed items, ate food, drank soda and liquor and went to sleep in a bedroom upstairs."
Taylor has not posted $2,000 bond.
