Hollywood DJ Indicted In Cocaine Trafficking Bust

43-year-old Darrin Ebron, 13 others face life in prison

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A celebrity disc jockey and 13 others have been indicted in a cocaine ring where authorities say private jets were used to shuttle drugs from coast to coast.

Among those facing drug trafficking and money laundering charges is Darrin Ebron, who runs Goodlife American Clothing and was the DJ at Eddie Murphy’s 2008 nuptials in Bora Bora. The 43-year-old Ebron and three others were being sought by investigators. Several arrests had already been made.

If convicted, each of the defendants could face up to life in prison.

Authorities say the ring smuggled hundreds of pounds of cocaine via private jets from Southern California to Baltimore. They seized nearly 300 kilograms of cocaine and $1.1 million.
