Flavor Flav Arrested for Assault With a Deadly Weapon & Domestic Battery

flavor flavWhat happens in Vegas never stays in Vegas when you are a star. Hip-hop great Flavor Flav was arrested after a domestic disturbance on Wednesday.

Police say Flav (whose real name is William Drayton Jr.) was taken to the country jail for domestic battery and assault with a deadly weapon. And no, that weapon was not one of those giant clocks that usually dangles from his neck.


The former Public Enemy star allegedly got into an argument with his fiance Laura Meltzer and her 17-year-old son at 3:30 a.m. at the rapper's home. She claims that he threatened the teen with a knife after the kid tried to restrain him. There were no major injuries reported, though the star had a tiny cut on his hand.

We are used to seeing Flavor Flav in the midst of a lot of drama -- just nothing as serious as this. His most memorable buzz-worthy antics involved picking a mate from a horde of hoochie mamas on VH1's Flavor or Love. It was two seasons of the most ridiculous dating competition in history and we just couldn't turn away.

But this latest news could spell real trouble for the reality star. With charges like this, he might face jail time if found guilty. He's currently being held on $23,000 bail. If the allegations are in fact true, it is sad to see another celebrity go off the deep end -- though people who actually watched Flavor of Love may say he didn't have very far to fall.

What do you think of this latest Flavor Flav news? Surprised?
