Flavor Flav's fiancée has accused the Public Enemy hype man of assaulting her and threatening her teen son with a knife.
Police in Las Vegas say the rapper, whose given name is William Drayton Jr., is jailed on felony charges stemming from a domestic argument with his fiancée and threats to attack her son.
Officer Bill Cassell says no one was injured before the arrest around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday at a home in a residential neighborhood several miles southwest of the Las Vegas Strip.
The 53-year-old former rapper and reality television star, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., was being held on $23,000 bail at the Clark County jail, with an initial court appearance scheduled Thursday. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.
Drayton was part of the 1980s and 90s rap group Public Enemy whose public persona includes wearing a big clock on his chest.
