Flavor Flav Faces Felony Charges

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge in Las Vegas is expected to hear evidence in a felony case alleging entertainer Flavor Flav attacked his longtime girlfriend and her teenage son last October.

The 54-year-old former rap and reality TV star is due Wednesday before a Las Vegas judge who agreed twice before to postpone his hearing.

Defense attorney Tony Abbatangelo has said he hoped to settle the case, but prosecutor Jake Merback says nothing is resolved so far.

The entertainer’s legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr.

He’s accused of pushing his girlfriend of eight years to the floor Oct. 17 and wielding two knives while allegedly chasing and threatening the woman’s 17-year-old son.

He could face prison time on assault and child endangerment charges.
