Flavor Flav is back on streets of Las Vegas after alleged vicious attack on fiancée

Flavor Flav is back on the streets of Las Vegas free from jail pending a court appearance next week on felony assault and misdemeanor domestic battery charges after making bail.

A court clerk says the former hip-hop and reality TV star whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr. is due in court Monday.

Drayton was released on bail from the Clark County jail before a scheduled Thursday morning court appearance.

The former Public Enemy rapper is accused of vicious attack, throwing his fiancée Liz Trujillo, 39, to the floor and wielding knives as he chased and threatened to kill her 17-year-old son during an argument early Wednesday at their Vegas home.

Drayton told police he scuffled with the woman and her son but denied chasing or threatening the teen.

The incident occurred at approximately 3:30 this morning when 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 53-year-old Public Enemy rapper and Flavor of Love reality TV star was taken into custody early Wednesday morning in Las Vegas after the alleged attack.

Liz, who is the mother of Flavor’s 5-year-old child Karma, allegedly had her earring ripped out during the physical altercation.

Her son fled to his sister’s bedroom when the rapper chased him. The caller advised she had been involved in a physical altercation with her fiancé who was identified as William Drayton.

His betrothed then phoned 911 to contact emergency authorities.

It was also reported that after the physical altercation, Drayton had threatened his fiancé’s teenage son with a knife.

It is unclear which individual suffered the threat from the star and who was assailed.

After an investigation, Drayton was arrested and charged with Battery Domestic Violence and Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Prior to this arrest, Flavor spent a month in prison for assaulting his then-girlfriend in 1991, and three months behind bars for shooting at a neighbor in New York three years later.

His criminal history also included arrests and convictions on traffic violations.

If convicted, Flavor could face up to six years in jail for the former charge and six months for the latter.
