SPANISH BROADCASTING SYSTEM Regional Mexican KLAX (97.9 LA RAZA)/LOS ANGELES-based syndicated morning host RENAN ALMENDAREZ COELLO, a.k.a. "EL CUCUY," was booked WEDNESDAY (1/3) on suspicion of making criminal threats in connection with a NEW YEAR'S DAY confrontation with police. The DJ turned himself in and was released after posting $50,000 bail.

Various reports say EL CUCUY allegedly threatened his wife and a police officer and that his 28-year-old son had a wound to his chest.
