Man described in suit as Diddy’s ‘mule’ arrested at Opa-locka airport

Individual Alleged to be Diddy’s ‘Mule’ Arrested at Opa-locka Airport

In Opa-Locka, Florida, a man implicated in a recent federal lawsuit as performing errands for the renowned music mogul Diddy was apprehended on Monday at the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport. This arrest coincided with federal agents conducting searches at Diddy’s residences in Miami Beach and Los Angeles, part of an investigation into allegations of sex trafficking, according to sources.

Brendon Paul, a 25-year-old from Chagrin Falls, Ohio—a suburb of Cleveland—is now facing charges of felony drug possession. This follows the discovery of suspected cocaine and marijuana-infused candy by the Miami-Dade police.

The lawsuit brings to light accusations against Diddy, legally known as Sean Combs, by music producer Rodney Jones. Jones claims that Combs sexually assaulted him and coerced him into engaging with prostitutes.

Further allegations within the lawsuit suggest that Paul was involved in acquiring and distributing drugs and firearms on behalf of Combs. It also accuses him of being part of a group tasked with ensuring that sex workers were paid in cash.

According to Paul’s arrest report, he was found with the illegal substances inside his personal travel bags, which he admitted to before the search took place around 4:15 p.m.

The report, which highlights collaboration between the Miami-Dade police, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and Customs and Border Protection, does not implicate Combs, who has refuted all allegations against him.

Entertainment news outlet TMZ reported that the arrest followed an intervention by federal law enforcement agents at the airport, who had stopped Diddy and his entourage and intercepted Combs’ plane.

Paul was released from the Miami-Dade jail on Tuesday morning after posting bond.

The federal lawsuit includes photographs captioned “Brendan (sic) Paul and Mr. Combs,” further entangling the two in this unfolding legal drama.
