A mess! Crackhead Flavor Flav (whose government name is William Drayton Jr) was arrested and charged with assault Wednesday morning in Las Vegas after the 53-year-old former rapper assaulted his fiancée (Liz Trujillo, 39) and threatened her 17-year-old son, Gibran, with a knife.
According to the police arrest report, Drayton and his fiance of eight years were arguing because he had cheated on her. The arguing became physical and Drayton grabbed her by the shoulders, stomach and arms and threw her to the ground. He also pulled an earring out of the woman's ear, causing her to bleed, the report said. When the teenage boy confronted Drayton, the two began fighting and wrestling until Drayton grabbed two large knives from the kitchen and began chasing the boy and threatening to kill him, the report said. The boy ran upstairs and locked himself and his younger sister in her room. Drayton kicked in the bedroom door and again threatened the boy while holding the knives, the report said. When officers arrived, Drayton confirmed the stories of his fiance and her son, but said he did not chase the boy or threaten him, the report said. Drayton's left hand had a cut on it from one of the knives. Officers found the knives on the kitchen floor. Drayton was taken into custody and is facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence. He is scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning.Flav faces a felony assault with a deadly weapon charge carrying a possible penalty of up to six years in prison and a misdemeanor battery-domestic violence charge that could get him six months in county jail.
