Flavor Flav must be a public enemy in his own home. The clock-wearing hype man was arrested early this morning in Las Vegas after he allegedly threatened his fiancee’s teenage son with a knife. According to police, it all began when Flav, 53, and Liz Trujillo got into a heated argument, and her son intervened in defense of his mother. After the boy and Flav scrapped, Trujillo called 911. Police arrested Flav around 3 a.m. and booked him on two charges: felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor domestic violence. Eight hours later, he posted $23,000 bail and was released.
Wednesday morning’s incident marks the second time police were called to Flav’s home for a domestic dispute this year alone. On January 28, his 19-year-old daughter Dazayna, one of his seven kids, was arrested after she got into a physical altercation with one of her stepbrothers. When the “Flavor of Love” star tried to break it up, Dazayna clocked her own father.
Flav, Trujillo, her son Gibran (who may be the one Flav allegedly threatened and possibly the same person whom Dazayna fought in Janaury), and the couple’s own son Karma all appeared on an episode of “Celebrity Wife Swap” earlier this year. The reality star and Suzette Snider, the wife of Twisted Sister rocker Dee Snider, butted heads over his lack of interest in the family (Snider also said he made her cry), while Trujillo didn’t much care for the fact that she had to do household chores at the Snider home.
