Brendan Paul Arrested in Relation to Diddy Case

( – Brendan Paul, a man said to be rapper P. Diddy’s “drug mule,” was nabbed at Opa-Locka Airport in Miami by Miami-Dade Police along with Homeland Security agents, around 4.30pm on Monday. This happened simultaneously as authorities raided Diddy’s properties in Los Angeles and Miami as part of a sex trafficking probe. Federal agents detained two of Diddy’s sons, Justin and King Combs, during the raids but they were later released without any charges. Images from the Los Angeles raid depict at least two individuals being handcuffed.

Diddy was seen at Opa-Locka Airport around 3pm, shortly before Paul’s arrest, after his jet arrived from LA. However, it’s unclear where Diddy went thereafter, as authorities have refrained from commenting on his location. Diddy’s plan was to jet off to the Caribbean, and after his arrival in Miami, he blocked public tracking of his jet. Although his phones were confiscated, he wasn’t arrested.

The Gulfstream 5 jet belonging to LoveAir LLC was later found in Antigua in the Caribbean, but he was not found aboard the aircraft.

The arrest warrant obtained by revealed that Paul confessed to having drugs in his luggage when law enforcement intercepted him at Miami Opa Locka Executive Airport around 4:15pm on Monday. According to the document filed by the Miami-Dade Police Department, Paul was found with suspected cocaine and marijuana candy in his personal travel bags. The seized cocaine was tested, and Paul was charged accordingly.

Paul, hailing from Chagrin Falls, Ohio, is facing charges of felony cocaine possession and marijuana possession. He is currently being held at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami on two $2,500 bonds.

Paul was implicated as Diddy’s “drug mule” in a $30 million lawsuit filed by Rodney ‘Lil Rod’ Jones against Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs. The lawsuit alleged Diddy’s involvement in acquiring and distributing drugs and guns. However, it’s uncertain if Paul’s arrest is linked to the allegations in the lawsuit or the raids on Diddy’s properties.
