Flavor Flav Pleads Guilty To Misdemeanor Attempted Battery Against Son
Entertainer Flavor Flav has pleaded guilty to reduced charges in a Las Vegas domestic violence case in a move that will avoid a trial and possible jail time.
The 55-year-old rapper and reality TV star acknowledged Monday in Clark County District Court that he wielded a kitchen knife during an October 2012 argument at home with his longtime girlfriend’s 17-year-old son.
A judge sentenced him to probation and four more months of domestic violence counseling.
The clock-wearing entertainer’s legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr.
He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of attempted battery that could have caused substantial injury and battery constituting domestic violence.
Drayton had been facing felony assault and child endangerment with a weapon charges that could have gotten him up to 12 years in prison.
His next court date is Aug. 18.
Honestly, parents who threaten their kids with knives shouldn’t be allowed to plead to lesser charges. Gotta make an example out of ’em.
