Flavor Flav was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon in Las Vegas, Nevada. Police say the incident took place in his home after he got into a heated argument with a teenager as well as his fiancee. His fiancee then called 911, but it's unclear if the teenager is his child.
According to law enforcement sources, Flav, whose real name William Drayton Jr., allegedly threatened one person with a knife during the argument, and battered the other. It's unclear which person he threatened, and which he physically attacked.
Flav was arrested around 3 a.m. and booked on two charges -- felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor domestic violence (battery).
He's currently being held on $23,000 bail.
Earlier this year, Flav was arrested in Albany, New York, for failing to pay more than $111,186 in child support. The Albany County magistrate recommended a 180-day jail sentence. He had his driver's license suspended and his passport revoked after he failed to show up to a family hearing.
In January 2012, Flav's daughter was arrested in Las Vegas over a domestic dispute involving her stepbrother. Police were called to the rapper's home after an argument turned violent. Dazayna Drayton was charged with misdemeanour battery after police found evidence in the home to support the charge.
