In early October, rapper Flavor Flav was arrested on a domestic battery charge in Nevada.
TMZ reports that Flav was pinched on October 5 and hit with a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery by Henderson PD. The details are sketchy, but steeped in the struggle you should expect.
We’re told cops responded to a call about a domestic disturbance and when they got there Flav was placed into custody and taken to the Henderson Detention Center.
According to the criminal complaint, obtained by TMZ, Flav allegedly poked his finger on the alleged victim’s nose, grabbed her, threw her down and grabbed a phone out her hand.
The City Attorney tells us Flavor Flav is officially charged with misdemeanor battery constituting domestic violence.
Flav’s attorney, David Chesnoff, tells TMZ … “in alleged domestic violence cases, there are often 2 sides to the story and we will explain our side in the courtroom and not in the media.”
Come on Flav.
Reportedly, Flav has quit smoking and is one year sober. But he’s been mired in domestic violence accusations before. Back in 2012 he was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend and their then 17-year-old son. The Public Enemy founding member also has numerous DUI arrests on his record.
