The fight is said to have become violent, an earring was pulled out during the altercation and the woman was shoved to the ground.

    According to the report, Flav confirmed most of the statements made to police by Trujillo and her son, but denied chasing the boy with knives and threatening him.

    Following his arrest, Flav was booked on charges of felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor domestic violence. He was released a few hours later after posting $23,000 bail.

    Flav is due in court today.
