Flava, formally known as William Jonathan Drayton Jr., 62, was “arrested on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery on Oct. 5 by the Henderson PD,” TMZ revealed.

Police responded to a call for a domestic disturbance, and when they arrived the hype man “was placed into custody and taken to the Henderson Detention Center.”

According to the police report obtained by the outlet, “Flav allegedly poked his finger on the alleged victim’s nose, grabbed her, threw her down, and grabbed a phone out her hand.”

The City Attorney has since confirmed that Flava Flav was “charged with misdemeanor battery constituting domestic violence.”

The New York native’s attorney, David Chesnoff, claimed that any sort of rebuttal will be made only in the courtroom.

“In alleged domestic violence cases, there are often 2 sides to the story and we will explain our side in the courtroom and not in the media,” he told TMZ.
