(Newser) – Rapper and reality star Flavor Flav was arrested this morning for alleged assault with a deadly weapon in his Las Vegas home. The former Public Enemy member—real name William Drayton Jr.—reportedly started arguing with his fiancée and a teenager in his house, and ended up allegedly beating one and threatening another with a knife. It's not clear which one goes with which alleged crime, nor is it clear if the teen is Drayton's child, TMZ reports. The rapper was also charged with domestic violence, and is being held on bail.
