Flavor Flav cops a plea in butcher knife case


Seems Flavor Flav can’t stay out of the news, but he will manage to stay out of jail.

Flav was facing felony assault and child endangerment with a weapon charges that carried up to 12 years in prison for allegedly threatening the 17-year-old son of his fiancée, Liz Trujillo. Trujillo says the Public Enemy hype man and reality TV star threw her around and threatened her son with a 20 inch butcher knife when he attempted to intervene.

55-year- old Flav, real name William Drayton, instead pled guilty in a Las Vegas court to a lessor misdemeanor charge of attempted battery.

A court date of August 18 has been set for the case.
