Coral Gables Police have arrested a North Miami DJ they say was driving drunk when his car slammed into a vehicle stopped at a Coral Gables traffic light last Sunday, killing both people inside.
Ervens Prudent, 26, was heading east on Southwest Eighth Street about 1:20 a.m. behind a car carrying Sweetwater residents Maria Martinez, 44, and Marlon Gutierrez, 34, police said.
Their car stopped for a traffic light at Douglas Road.
Prudent didn’t, investigators say.
The impact killed Martinez and Gutierrez and seriously injured Prudent.
He was treated at Jackson Memorial Hospital as police investigated the crash.
They arrested him there Friday night.
Prudent faces two counts of vehicular manslaughter and two counts of DUI manslaughter, and is being held on a combined $15,000 bond, according to his arrest affidavit.
A website owned by Defyne Entertainment says Prudent, also known as DJ A.O.L., “is a Miami record producer, songwriter known for an underground hit song titled “Take a Look at My Swag.”
