The drunk driver, Daniel Joseph Silva, a celebrity tattoo artist, was arrested Monday evening on suspicion of murder.
The Los Angeles Police Department said Silva was driving fast in a 2020 McLaren 600LT about 9:40 p.m. Sunday when he lost control, ran off the road and hit a stop sign and a tree at the corner of Huston Street and Carpenter Avenue in Valley Village.
