Flavor Flav jailed in Las Vegas after domestic argument, police say

Flavor Flav has been jailed on felony charges stemming from a domestic argument with his fiancee and threats to attack her teenage son with a knife, Las Vegas police say.

According to officer Bill Cassell, 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.

Drayton was part of the 1980s and '90s rap group Public Enemy.
