Former Syracuse Guard Arrested on Felony Charges Amidst Allegations of Drug Trafficking in Sean Combs’ Case

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

Miami-Dade police records have recently revealed that former Syracuse guard Brendan Paul was arrested on felony charges for 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. Although Paul was released on bond, he is scheduled for a hearing in April.

Despite the coincidence of his arrest with the raid on Combs’ properties, there are no reports linking the two cases. However, allegations have emerged linking Paul to Combs’ sex trafficking case. 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, but Paul’s attorney has stated that they intend to address the issues in court, rather than in the media.

Brendan Paul started his basketball career as a walk-on at Syracuse in 2018 but later transferred to Division-II Fairmont State to finish his collegiate career. He played a total of 51 games over two seasons for Fairmont State. Despite his brief tenure at Syracuse, Paul’s name has now become associated with Combs’ legal troubles.
