Flavor Flav Mug shot, William Drayton

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department

New details have emerged in the wake of Flavor Flav's arrest early Wednesday morning for alleged assault with a deadly weapon.

According to a Las Vegas police report, the rapper (real name: William Drayton Jr.) got into an argument with his fiancée, Elizabeth Trujillo, after she accused him of cheating on her. The fight is said to have become violent, an earring was pulled out during the altercation and the woman was shoved to the ground.

Flav was then confronted by Trujillo's 17-year-old son, at which point Flav grabbed two knives and followed the teen upstairs and threatened his life, the report said.

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.
