Rapper/entertainer Flavor Flav has entered a plea deal in the domestic violence case against him. On Monday, Flavor Flav (real name William Drayton) pleaded guilty to reduced charges and was sentenced to probation and further counseling, according to the AP. The domestic violence case reportedly involved the teenage son of Drayton’s girlfriend.

Flav got off with probation and counceling.

The case has been going on for about a year now, with the teen having testified in a preliminary hearing that Drayton threatened to kill him, chased him to a bedroom and stabbed a knife through the door during the argument. The 55-year-old entertainer did admit to wielding a kitchen knife during an Oct. 17, 2012, argument at home in Las Vegas.

According to the family, however, Drayton and the teenager, whom he referred to as his “stepson” in court, are working through their issues.

"I love my son and my son loves me, too," he told the judge.

The teen, now 18, and his mother were not in court when Drayton entered his plea to misdemeanor charges of attempted battery that could have caused substantial injury and battery constituting domestic violence. The charges, although severe, are much lighter than what Drayton was previously accused of - facing felony assault and child endangerment with a weapon charges that could have gotten him up to 12 years in prison.

Drayton now faces another trial. He has been charged with felony speeding and driving without a license case in Mineola, N.Y. Flavor Flav and his lawyers commented outside court, saying that they didn’t expect the verdict to affect the speeding charges.
