Flavor Flav Indicted on Felony Driving Charges
As we previously reported, the Public Enemy hype man-turned-reality star was arrested on Jan. 9, 2014 in Long Island, N.Y. for speeding (he was reportedly going 79 mph in a 55 mph zone).
Police found him to be driving with a suspended license and when they stopped him, marijuana was in the car. Flav was arrested for felony aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle and was later released without bail. The entertainer was allowed to attend his mother’s funeral.
A spokesman for the District Attorney tells Billboard that the legendary hip-hop personality (real name William Drayton) has a Jan. 21 court appearance scheduled. His attorney is seeking to reach a plea agreement in the matter and did not comment on the story.
