Celebrity gossip-website TMZ.com is reporting that Public Enemy's own Flavor Flav has been arrested while in Las Vegas. Flav was reportedly arrested after police found out he had four outstanding warrants during a traffic violation.
Flavor Flav found himself behind bars in Vegas this weekend … after the rapper was pulled over for a routine traffic violation … and the cop noticed there were FOUR warrants out for his arrest.
Las Vegas cops tell us … Flav — aka William Jonathan Drayton, Jr. — was pulled over at 10:57 PM Friday night.
When the cop ran Flav's name in the system, he learned the rapper was a wanted man stemming from several prior brushes with the law.
According to law enforcement, Flav never settled up with the court in 4 separate automobile-related matters — including driving without proof of insurance, a parking violation and two cases of driving without a license.
We're told Flav was taken to a nearby jail — where he was booked, posed for a brand new mug shot and was eventually released. (TMZ)
