Flav — aka William Drayton, Jr. — was pulled over for a routine traffic violation when, according to TMZ, cops noticed the rapper/reality TV staple/entrepreneur was wanted on four outstanding warrants.
Nothing too sketchy, just traffic offenses: driving without proof of insurance, a parking violation and two cases of driving without a license. Still, it was enough to snag Flav a new mug shot. After processing, he was released and was not required to stay in jail.
On Monday, Flav tweeted his take on the arrest — accusing a “curious rookie cop” of pulling him over:
he found out I had a traffic warrant wanted to make a name for himself took me in and @CNNshowbiz
Flav’s new restaurant, “Flavor Flav’s House Of Flavor,” is set to open at Las Vegas’ Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas May 30.
