3 Puerto Rico reggaeton singers under DEA scrutiny

Three Puerto Rican reggaeton stars have come under U.S. scrutiny after recently performing at the wedding of an alleged drug trafficker in Colombia who previously was presumed dead.

The acting special agent in charge of the Caribbean division for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration says singer Arcangel and duo Jowell & Randy were among seven artists present at the wedding.

Pedro Janer said Thursday that the DEA is going to look into the case and called the groom a "notorious drug trafficker."

The artists were performing at the weeklong wedding party of Camilo Torres. Colombian authorities raided the party in late June just hours after the wedding and arrested Torres, whom Janer said assumed a new identity after someone filed a false death certificate for him in 2010.
