Brendan Paul, Former Syracuse player, arrested on drug charges for allegedly being a courier for Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs

In recent news, former Syracuse guard Brendan Paul was arrested in Miami on drug-related charges. According to Miami-Dade police records, he was taken into custody on felony charges for the possession of suspected cocaine and marijuana candy. The arrest took place as federal agents were raiding rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs’ properties in Los Angeles and Miami as part of an alleged sex trafficking investigation.

Despite the timing of his arrest coinciding with the raid on Combs’ properties, Paul’s arrest is not related to the case. However, allegations have emerged linking Paul to Combs’ legal troubles. In a federal lawsuit filed in February, it was claimed that Paul worked as Combs’ “mule,” acquiring and distributing drugs and guns. Combs has denied these allegations, and Paul’s attorney has stated that they intend to address the issues in court, rather than in the media.

Before his arrest, Brendan Paul had a brief tenure at Syracuse, where he started his basketball career as a walk-on in 2018. He later transferred to Division-II Fairmont State to finish his collegiate career, playing a total of 51 games over two seasons for the university. Now, however, Paul’s name has become associated with Combs’ legal troubles.
