Flavor Flav Freed on Bail, Facing Six Years in Prison over Assault Charge
Published Oct 19, 2012Earlier this week, Public Enemy member Flavor Flav (aka William Drayton Jr.) was arrested and taken to a Las Vegas jail after being charged with assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence battery. The rapper has now been released on $23,000 bail, but is facing six years in prison over the violent incident.
When the story was originally reported, it was said that the rapper had got in an argument with his fiancée and a teenager at his Las Vegas home. As the argument escalated, Drayton allegedly beat one of the parties present and threatened the other with a knife, though we didn't know who suffered which fate. A police report based on the fiancée's call to 911 now explain that she was assaulted by Flav, while the teen, now identified as her son, was threatened with the knife.
"The caller advised she had been involved in a physical altercation with her fiancé who was identified as William Drayton," a police statement revealed.
While Flav has since been released from custody, he's due in court this Monday (October 22) to answer to the charges. If he is found guilty, he will face a maximum of six years in prison.
