Public Enemy rapper has been charged with misdemeanor battery that later led to domestic violence
Flavor Flav has been charged after being arrested for alleged domestic battery in Nevada earlier this month.
Public Enemy rapper, real name William Jonathan Drayton Jr., has officially been charged with misdemeanor battery leading to domestic violence.
TMZ Reports that Flav was booked by the Henderson Police Department on October 5 on a charge of domestic battery abuse.
Flav was detained and taken to the Henderson Detention Center after police allegedly answered a call about domestic unrest.
As per criminal complaint received by TMZFlew reportedly “put his finger on the alleged victim’s nose, grabbed her, threw her down and grabbed a phone from her hand”.
In response to the allegations, David Chesnoff, Flav’s lawyer, told TMZ: “In cases of alleged domestic violence, there are often two sides to the story and we will tell our side in the courtroom and not in the media.”
Last month, Public Enemy’s Chuck D responded to claims made by Flavor Flav that he was pausing a reunion tour.
Flav claimed TMZ That Public Enemy is blocking the reunion because of Chuck D’s refusal to sign a partnership agreement, but a statement released by Chuck D’s publicist denied the claims.
“It’s tired and stupid,” said Chuck D. “Flav sues the people he works with, so in 2017 he decided it was my turn. He lost when the judge dismissed the trial in 2020 with prejudice, meaning it was permanent. Is. Up. He can’t file again. He’s lost.
“Even after all this, after all the years of Flav giving the minimum position still asking for the maximum, I still work with him. But it is time to change. cannot be a burden.
“The key word in ‘Brothers Gonna Work It Out’ is the word ‘Work.’ We’ll always be brothers, but Flav has to work and not get down without work. That’s easy.”
