Flavor Flav To Stand Trial For Threats With Butcher Knife
Flavor Flav is in big trouble. A judge in Las Vegas has ruled that there is evidence that the Public Enemy rapper and OG reality show star threatened his girlfriend's son with a butcher knife. Thus, Flav must stand trial on a pair of felony charges.
Reports USA Today:
The clock-wearing 54-year-old former rap and reality TV star didn't testify during an evidence hearing Wednesday, but the teen did.
The judge scheduled arraignment April 18 on felony charges of assault with a weapon and child endangerment.
The entertainer whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr. is expected to plead not guilty.
He's accused of pushing his girlfriend to the floor Oct. 17 and wielding knives while chasing and threatening the teen at their Las Vegas home.
Drayton could face up to 12 years in prison if convicted.
This is only the latest in bad news for Flav. Over a week ago, his fiancee, Liz Trujillo, was allegedly hospitalized for an overdose. However, her reps say that she was treated from exhaustion thanks to staying up all night for the new season of the Couples Therapy reality show they are part of.
Yes, it is Trujillo's son that Flavor Flav, allegedly, threatened with the knives.
