Brendan Paul, the man who was accused of being Sean "Diddy" Combs' drug mule, has dodged a jail sentence after he took a plea deal in his possession case.

Paul's attorney Brian Bieber told TMZ on Thursday, May 16, that his client accepted the terms of a decent deal made by prosecutors in Miami. He originally faced a felony drug charge after he was caught in possession of cocaine and marijuana candies. Both Bieber and a rep for the Miami-Dade State Attorney's office confirmed Paul could have the case dismiss if he fulfills all the requirements of the deal.

"Brendan accepted the prosecutor’s offer to permit his entry into the diversion program which, after completion, the case against him will be dismissed in its entirety," Bieber explained.

Paul was a non-violent defendant with zero priors when he was arrested in March. As part of the deal, the former basketball player for Syracuse University signed up for a drug diversion course that will last for six months. The charge and case will remain pending until he completes the course.

Police apprehended Paul after they discovered the drugs in his bag during their encounter with Diddy and his team at the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport. Diddy's assistant was booked and charged around the same time the Department of Homeland Security conducted raids on the music mogul's two homes. Diddy was not arrested that day nor has he been charged with any crimes. His attorney previously declared his client was innocent despite the raids and the numerous civil lawsuits that were filed against Diddy.
