Flava Flav Arrested on Felony Charge of Assault With a Deadly Weapon

Flava Flav9-1-1 is not a joke, and neither is threatening your fiancée with a deadly weapon. Unfortunately, rapper and entertainer Flava Flav had to learn this the hard way. Flava Flav, whose real name is William Drayton, was arrested in Las Vegas early Wednesday morning after his fiancée, Liz Trujillo, made a call to the police.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issued a statement to Hollywood.com that reads, “At approximately 3:30 this morning  the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department received a call of a domestic disturbance occurring at a residence in the 7800 block of Via Ventura Court.  The caller advised she had been involved in a physical altercation with her fiancé who was identified as William Drayton. It was also reported that after the physical altercation, Drayton had threatened his fiance’s teenage son with a knife.”

The statement continues, “After an investigation, Drayton was arrested and charged with Battery Domestic Violence and Assault with a Deadly Weapon.”

Flav, whom TMZ reports was bailed out of jail for $23,000 just before 11:30 AM PT Wednesday morning, has a court appearance scheduled for Thursday.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
