Flavor Flav arrested in Las Vegas domestic case
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Entertainer Flavor Flav threw his fiancee to the floor twice and grabbed two knives as he chased and threatened to kill her 17-year-old son during an argument on Wednesday at their home in Las Vegas, a police report states.
The former rapper, hip-hop and reality TV star, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., cut his finger with one of the knives before police arrived and arrested him about 3.30am (6.30pm, Singapore time), according to the report.
Drayton, 53, was jailed on US$23,000 (S$28,000) bail pending an initial court appearance Thursday on a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon and a misdemeanor count of battery-domestic violence.
He could face up to six years in prison on the assault charge if convicted.
