Flavor Flav Arrested For Assaulting Teenager With A Deadly Weapon

Police in Las Vegas arrested former rap and reality TV star Flavor Flav at about 3:30 this morning, after he allegedly threatened to assault a teenager in his home.

The teenager in question is the son of Flavor Flav’s fiancee, Liz Trujillo (who, remarkably, he did not meet on Flavor of Love, the reality dating show he starred on). Liz is the mother of Flav’s seventh child, Karma. She also has an older son, Gibran Trujillo, from a previous relationship–and all indications are that he is the one involved here.

Police say that no one was hurt in the incident, though there are unsubstantiated rumors that at least one individual was injured. Reportedly, Flav was brandishing a knife and arguing with his Trujillo’s son, when she decided to call the police.

Flavor Flav’s real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr. and he’s 52 years-old. He’s currently being held on $23,000 bail and he’s due in court tomorrow to face felony assault charges.

Going to jail isn’t exactly a new experience for him, as Flav has previously been arrested for drug charges, robbery, burglary, traffic-related charges, assaulting his girlfriend and even attempting to murder his neighbor. It’s probably safe to say that he’s partying with all the other inmates at this very moment.

  1. With Flavor-Flav’s unsavory police related past, how could this woman still be with him if she knows all that? I’m thinking his money. She has very low standards and probably and even lower self esteem.
