More details have emerged regarding Flavor Flav’s arrest for domestic assault earlier this week.
A report from TMZ reveals that the Public Enemy rapper “violently threw his fiancee to the ground” and “ripped out her earring.” Not only that, he then decided to threaten her 17 year-old son with a knife, after he reportedly stepped into the fray to protect his mother.
TMZ have obtained the Las Vegas police report, which states that an argument between the hip-hop star and his fiancee flared up when she accused him of cheating on her. The disagreement quickly turned violent and Flavor Flav – real name William Jonathan Drayton Jr - reportedly grabbed his partner and threw her twice to the ground. The report continues that he then grabbed not just one but two knives and proceeded to chase her son round the house, kicking down a locked door to get to him. He then threatened to kill the teenager.
Apparently, Flav has denied chasing the teenage boy with a knife and has also denied threatening to kill him. This, however, is far from the first instance of domestic abuse that Flavor Flav has been embroiled in. He has a history of violence that dates back to at least 1991 when he was convicted of assaulting his then-girlfriend Karen Ross. After this recent assault, he was arrested on account of misdemeanor battery ad felony assault with a deadly weapon. He posted $23,000 bail and is due back in court next week.
