It has just been reported that DJ and producer Erick Morillo has been arrested following accusations of sexual battery at his home in Miami Beach, Florida.
According to initial reports earlier today (August 6) from Local 10, the international act, Morillo, was arrested and charged with sexual battery following an encounter with a woman at his home in Miami Beach from December 2019.
The altercation has been denied by the 49-year-old musician, although on Wednesday, results of a rape kit came back positive for Morillo’s DNA. According to a police report, Morillo turned himself in along with his attorney.
In December, Morillo and the victim were both working together as DJs on Star Island during a private party. Following the event, they both, along with another woman, traveled to Erick’s home on La Gorce Drive for drinks.
According to Local 10, the arrest report revealed that the victim told detectives that Morillo “made several advances towards her, some sexual in nature, but she refused all of his attempts.” The victim told police she was intoxicated and later found a room inside the home to sleep by herself. She “reported waking up nude on the bed, with Mr. Morillo standing on the side of the bed also nude,” according to the arrest report.
