If you read the news last week, you probably saw the story about Flavor Flav getting arrested for domestic abuse. Flavor Flav is the former hype man of the 90’s rap group Public Enemy and subject of a reality show on VH1 called Flavor of Love, which ran for 3 seasons.
Flavor Flav intends to fight criminal charges and seek reconciliation with his longtime fiancee after an argument led to his arrest last week, the entertainer’s lawyer said Monday.
The 53-year-old former rap, hip-hop and reality TV star, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., didn’t appear in person during a hearing before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa.
Drayton’s attorney Tony Abbatangelo told The Associated Press his client plans to plead not guilty to allegations that he pushed his girlfriend of eight years to the floor and wielded two knives as he chased and threatened the woman’s 17-year-old son during an argument Wednesday at their home in Las Vegas.
Drayton is charged with felony assault and misdemeanor domestic battery. He could face up to six years in prison if convicted of the assault charge and six months in jail on the domestic battery charge.
