Former Syracuse Guard Arrested on Drug-Related Charges: What You Need to Know

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 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. The timing of his arrest coincided with the raid of 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, stating that he intends to address them in court rather than in the media. Despite this, Paul’s attorney has stated that they intend to address the issues in court as well.

Brendan Paul began his basketball career as a walk-on at Syracuse in 2018 before transferring 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 associated with Combs’ legal troubles due to his recent arrest.
