Former Syracuse Basketball Player Arrested on Drug-Related Charges, Ties to Diddy Sex Trafficking Case

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

Syracuse basketball legend Brendan Paul was recently arrested in Miami on drug-related charges. According to Miami-Dade police records, he was arrested on felony charges for possession of suspected cocaine and marijuana candy. The arrest occurred 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.

The timing of Paul’s arrest coincided with the raid of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ properties, but they are not related. 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, and Paul’s attorney has stated that they intend to address the issues in court, rather than in the media.

Despite his brief tenure at Syracuse, Paul’s name has now become associated with Combs’ legal troubles. Despite starting his basketball career as a walk-on at Syracuse in 2018, Paul 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 before becoming embroiled in this scandal.
