Flavor Flav to fight abuse charges

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Flavor Flav intends to fight criminal charges and seek reconciliation with his longtime fiancée after an argument led to his arrest last week, the entertainer’s lawyer said Monday.

The 53-year-old former rap, hip-hop and reality TV star, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., didn’t appear in person during a hearing before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa.

Drayton’s attorney Tony Abbatangelo told The Associated Press his client plans to plead not guilty to allegations that he pushed his girlfriend of 8 years to the floor and wielded two knives as he chased and threatened the woman’s 17-year-old son during an argument Wednesday at their home in Las Vegas.

Drayton is charged with felony assault and misdemeanor domestic battery. He could face up to 6 years in prison if convicted of the assault charge and 6 months in jail on the domestic battery charge.

“They’ve been together a long time, and they want to work this out,” Abbatangelo said. “We want what’s best for the family.”

Elizabeth Trujillo, 39, told police her earring was ripped out during the incident that she said stemmed from an argument over infidelity. The teen wasn’t injured.
