Looks like our favorite eccentric rapper/hypeman turned reality star turned fried chicken chain owner, Flavor Flav is in hot water yet again.

According to TMZ, Flavor (born William Drayton Jr.) was arrested for a domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon charge this morning (October 17, 2012) in Las Vegas.

The alledged arrest was the result of an altercation with his fiance and her son. The 53-year-old Public Enemy hype man was taken into custody at the Clark County jail at around 3:30 am and his bail was set at $23,000. A court appearance is scheduled for Thursday. Drayton placed bail at 11: 27 am.

As previously reported, Drayton, along with his rhyme partner Chuck D, are nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
