Fairmont State Basketball Player Arrested on Drug-Related Charges, Tied to Allegations of Sex Trafficking with Diddy Combs

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

Fairmont State guard Brendan Paul was arrested on drug-related charges in Miami, Florida. 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. According to Miami-Dade police records, Paul was charged with felony possession of suspected cocaine and marijuana candy.

Despite the timing of his arrest coinciding with the raid on Combs’ properties, there is no evidence linking the two cases. 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.

Brendan Paul started his basketball career as a walk-on at Syracuse University before transferring to Fairmont State University 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 is now associated with Combs’ legal troubles due to allegations linking him to drug trafficking activities related to Combs’ case.
