Flavor Flav , William Jonathan Drayton Jr., Mug Shot

He might not be public enemy No. 1, but  Flavor Flav hasn't exactly endeared himself to Sin City cops.

The Public Enemy MC and reality-TV star wound up posing for a mug shot in Las Vegas on Friday when law enforcement tagged him for a moving violation and determined he was a wanted man. A very wanted man...

Per LVPD spokesman Bill Cassell, Flav (real name William Jonathan Drayton Jr.), was pulled over around 11 p.m. as part of a routine traffic stop. When the officer ran his name in the police, database it turned out the rapper was quite the scofflaw, having four outstanding warrants out for his arrest.

The priors included driving without proof of insurance, a parking violation and two cases of driving without a license, all of which he failed to take care of.

Flav was subsequently taken into custody and booked into a nearby jail before being released several hours later.

And nope, Brigitte Nielsen didn't bail him out.

The hip-hopster later took to Twitter, blaming his brief stint in the joint on a "curious rookie ass cop."

"Hey y'all this is FLAVOR FLAV, I was on my home from Benihana's I got pulled over by a curious Rookie Ass Cop," Flav tweeted.

"He found out I had a traffic warrant wanted to make a name for himself took me in and now I'm home laying my bed what's the big deal?!," he continued.

Flav did acknowledge however he settled up with the court and is now in the clear.

"At least, I cleared up my sh-t...some people are still on the run!" he quipped.
