Flavor Flav's Legal Troubles: A History

Tags: Flavor Flav

Rapper and reality TV star Flavor Flav is no stranger to legal troubles and run ins with the law. Earlier this week he was sentenced to probation and further counselling after pleading guilty to lesser charges in a domestic violence case against him. To add to his legal woes he’s also facing another trial after being charged with felony speeding and driving without a license case. For the man who was born William Drayton these two incidents are just the latest in a career which has been marred by legal troubles.

Drayton’s legal troubles started long before he found fame with Public Enemy, the New York native who dropped out of school by the 11th grade was already finding himself in and out of jail for robbery and burglary at a young age. After forming Public Enemy with Chuck D, the group rose to fame with the release of 1988’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. The group's success, however, only worsened Drayton’s growing drug addiction as he dabbled with crack and cocaine. In 1991 his drug abuse had escalated and he admits to using, “‘Quaaludes, angel dust, PCP, cocaine, crack, alcohol, weed,” during the period. He was then arrested that year for domestic violence against his then girlfriend Karen Ross, who was the mother of his three children. Drayton pleaded guilty to assault and served a 30 day jail term whilst also loosing custody of his children. The rapper would attempt to get clean from drugs in 1993 after a family intervention, but his stint at the Betty Ford clinic didn't work on that occasion. Four years later he attempted recovery again after the death of his father checking into the Long Island Center for Recovery.

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.

Well I must say that flavor flav 2 show is very interesting. To have New York back was a shock to say the very least. I have always said to expect the unexpected while watching the show. One never know's what is going to happen. I am also going to be shock if New York wins. This time around I would like for delious to win. (don't know if I spelled her name right. She seems to have her head on straight and very mature. The show is going to be very interesting indeed once New York parents arrive. I thought this would be on last week show but I guess we have to wait and see. It was nice to see the celebrities on the show. However I was very pleased to see it did not take away from what the show is really about. When the new show first aired I kept thinking wow, where did these women come from.To have that one woman use the bathroom on the floor, well you could not pay me enough money to do that. The new batch of women is something else.

Yeahh Hoopz won, ^_^. My heart was pounding just as much as Mr. Flavor was. I was on pins and needles as to who he was going to pick. At this point I did not even know, but I was hoping it would be Hoopz. As I sat watching the show, I was kind of sad knowing this would be the first and last reality show that I would watch. Not so because I will be watching the reunion show in the next two weeks. Mr. Flavor, Im not sure if you even read the message board but just in case that you do. I want to thank you for letting me into your life I had a wonderful time watching your show. I wish you the very best with Hoopz and I hope that she will make all of your dreams come true. Take care and thank you again.

Okay as I write this I am sitting here with a slightly boo boo face. I had my popcorn and the best seat in the house, thinking I was about to see the NEW episode of Flavors' reality show. There were no announcement that the NEW show would not come on. And Im thinking what happen? I had already said to expect the unexpected when it comes to this show. So I set back and enjoyed the re-runs knowing when you watch something over again you will always notice something that you did not notice before. Im going to be fair(even though I do not want to) and say I feel that New York does love Flavor. However she will not be able to measure up to his standards. She is very immature and very easy to anger. New York will not be able to take Flavor being around other women. New York also became angry because Flavor would not tell her if she got a clock when the ceremony was cansel because Oyster had to leave. Hottie might be right when she said "New York is bi-polar". Hottie should also breathe a sigh of relief that she is still there. In the end I feel that it will come down to Pumpkin, Hoopz, Smiley, and Goldie. I still think Smiley broke him off a lit bit in that hot tub. I like these four ladies and at first I thought that Hoopz would win. (I still hope she does). But now Im thinking that it might be Smiley. Around the begining of the show Flavor said that he "might keep three of them". I wonder if he meant that. Now Im going to comment of Mr. Flavor's diet.If I were his woman he would not be eating all that salt and fried foods especially at his age. I would make sure he would eat more healthy. I notice none of the women caught on to that or if they did, they did not make mention of it. If you truly love someone, you will make sure that All of his/her needs are met.I truly hope the show has not been cansel. Now Im going to shut up. (lol). Until next week.

Wow what an emotional show this week. Can I call it or what? I was right about Smiley being the stripper and Hottie being the gold digger, but that darn Hottie lied right to the end even on her way out of the door. I was glad Mr. Flavor went off on her. I always said to expect the unexpected on this show.I was surprised to see Hottie on another reality show. I was suprise to learn that Smily was still in love with her ex-husband. What surprise me the most was Punkin being a snitch.(wow another Oyster)I have no respect for snitches. Now Hoopz is my girl, she reminds me so much of myself in as much as she will not take any mess from anyone. I felt she did not disrespect Bridgett because Bridgett started in on her. I could tell that Bridgett was jealous because Hoopz is pretty. I was glad to see that Mr. Flavor knew that Bridgett could not be objective but I will give Bridgett her props because she told the truth about the lie dector test.Okay this is what I think. It will be between Hoopz an Goldie. New York is too jealous and not mature enough to handle a relationship with Mr. Flavor. I lost respect for Pumpkin when she became a snitch and she never told Mr.Flavor about being on a reality show as well as having sex with whoever. So she has not been completly honest herself. As far as the previews of next week show goes, I was suprise seeing Goldie kiss Mr. Flavor. I was saying, you go gurl. lol. Oh well, until next week.

Hi Morgana,Sorry to say that Hoopz and Mr.Flavor broke up at the ending of the show. This is not hear say for I heard it on the radio this morning. I was shock to say the least. While listening to the radio the D.J. also said its going to be a season number 2. Wow I guess Im the only one that has never seen a reality show because Screen name Blessed hit the nail on the head when she said that there was no one else for Mr. Flavor to pick. I had said that this was going to be my first and last reality show that I would watch but I guess I am wrong because I will be watching season number 2.

First I feel the need to say Im sorry for every mean thing I said about New York because her mom got her beat. Whew what a woman and it made me feel good to hear Mr. Flavor say he would not kiss her ass. Now Pumpkin, hmmm, to spit in someone's face is just plain nasty and even though Hoopz said New York deserved it,I would have to dissagree. Mr. Flavor should have let New York handle Pumpkin. Pumpkin really dis-respected the whole show and to talk about Mr. Flavor the way she did only showed her real colors. Not everyone can stay but those who leave should do so with dignity and respect and hold on to the memories of the good times that Mr.Flavor showed to each of them before they left. Memories are something that cannot be taken away.This week show was very intensed and I was on edge as to who was going to stay. Mr. Flavor is something else. Just when I think he has ran out of ideas as to what he is going to do with the women, he always comes up with something different to do. It's still up in the air as to who is going to win.I thought I had a pretty good idea but now Im not sure. Oh well until next week.

Okay,its almost down to the wire as to who flavor will pick. The Ladies are awsome(including Mr.New York).Im wondering if he is going to chose the snitch (oyster).However I feel that hoopz will be the winner. I guess I will have to wait and see. Sweety I feel will be gone this week. She played herself by telling flavor a man would have to wait at least 3 weeks to get a kiss. Then at the next date she is all over him. And I can not wait until Mr. New York is eliminated. Flavor is a genuis. When he told the ladies he was going to introduce them to some Old friends,it was at the old folks home, lovely dinner was at red lobster. To see the expression on the ladies faces was priceless. Oh well until next week.
