South Florida Man Linked To Diddy’s Drug Case Spared Jail Time, What Is Now?

DEBARYLIFE – Prosecutors alleged that the individual, who was detained in March on drug-related crimes, escaped jail time in South Florida by working as a “drug mule” for rap superstar Sean “Diddy” Combs.

According to WSVN-TV, Brendan Paul, 25, of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, consented on Friday to finish a six-month drug and substance addiction course.

According to the news station, Paul’s lawyer, Brian Bieber, verified that he will enroll in a pretrial diversion program and that his case will be dropped after it is over.

The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office spokesman reportedly told TMZ that the agreement was a “standard offer to a non-violent defendant with no priors.”

On March 25, Paul was arrested at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, according to a story from the Miami Herald.

Paul was arrested for reportedly having suspected cocaine and marijuana-laced candies in his possession, according to a Miami-Dade County police arrest report, as reported by WKYC-TV. He was accused of possessing one kilogram of cocaine and one kilogram of a restricted drug.

The Miami Herald stated that his detention had nothing to do with the federal raids that same day on Combs’ residences in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles and on Star Island in Miami Beach. WSVN reports that Combs was not mentioned in Paul’s arrest affidavit.

An arrest report said, “The defendant had the contraband inside of his travel bags, which he claimed before being searched.” “Agents located and tested the suspected cocaine.”

As of Friday, Combs remained uncharged criminally about the federal investigations into his two houses, according to a report by WPLG-TV.

According to The New York Times, the raids happened one month after Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones Jr. sued Combs in a federal district court in Manhattan.

According to the Herald, Jones claimed in a 79-page lawsuit that Combs, his employees, and music executives were both aware of and complicit in unwelcome and illegal sexual acts in Florida, New York, California, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

According to the publication, Jones refers to a man by the name of Brendan Paul as “Mr. Combs’ Mule” in his complaint. Additionally, the man mentioned in the case was purported to be a distributor of Combs’s firearms and drugs. Paul’s first name is spelled “Brendon” in the complaint filed with the police, according to the Herald.

According to the lawsuit, which Rolling Stone cited, Jones states that he “personally witnessed” Paul transport or intend to smuggle illegal narcotics in his luggage while traveling between Los Angeles, Miami, Virginia, the Caribbean, and London in December 2022, April 2023, and November 2023.

Paul played walk-on basketball for Syracuse during his freshman and sophomore seasons, according to WSTM-TV. He played a few minutes in 17 different games. According to the TV station, Paul played his junior and senior years at Fairmount State University in West Virginia after transferring there in 2020.
