South Florida Crime

LAUDERDALE LAKES (CBSMiami) — After exchanging his rhymes for crimes, a radio disc jockey who replaced music on a local classical station with offensive rap music decided to “face the music”.

CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald reports Romayne Davis, 32, of Lauderdale Lakes, turned himself in for infiltrating WKCP Classical South Florida’s (89.7 FM) airwaves.

Davis is charged with one count of unauthorized transmission/interference with a public radio station.

After receiving a listener complaint, Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives searched an Oakland Park warehouse at Northwest 23 Way and retrieved radio equipment Davis used to broadcast his signal on 89.5 FM since March 2012. Davis was not present during the raid.

The playlist included songs by artists R. Kelly and T-Pain.

Davis, who DJs for Joker Boy Entertainment, was released on bond.
