    Flavor Flav, former member of the trailblazing rap group Public Enemy and connoisseur of oversized clock necklaces, was arrested in Las Vegas Wednesday for assault. Flav, whose real name is, shockingly, William Jonathan Drayton, Jr., was booked on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor domestic violence after Las Vegas police received a call at 3:30 a.m. from a woman claiming that her fiancé, allegedly Mr. Flav/Drayton, was threatening a 17-year-old with a knife. She also claimed that the former Flavor of Love Casanova had assaulted her.
