Flavor Flav was booked on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery related to an altercation with his girlfriend at home in suburban Las Vegas in October. The Public Enemy rapper has reportedly had those charges dropped.
Flavor Flav, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., pleaded no contest in Henderson Municipal Court to a nonviolent misdemeanor coercion charge, admitted he took a cellphone, and paid $640 in fines.
“Mr. Drayton and his family are grateful to bring an amicable close to this matter and appreciate everyone’s support as he continues his one-year journey of sobriety,” defense attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld said in a statement.
In October, the City Attorney said Flavor Flav was officially charged with misdemeanor battery constituting domestic violence. According to TMZ, Flavor Flav “allegedly poked his finger on the alleged victim’s nose, grabbed her, threw her down, and grabbed a phone out her hand.”
Drayton was arrested late October 4 at home in Henderson. He was freed from jail the next day on $3,000 bond.
