Rapper Flavor Flav has been released on bail following his early morning arrest on Wednesday (17Oct12).

The hip-hop star's fiancee Liz Trujillo called police to the couple's home in Las Vegas after she and her 17-year-old son reportedly fought with the reality Tv veteran.

The Public Enemy star was taken into custody after allegedly threatening one person with a knife and beating the other, and he was charged with one count of felony assault with a deadly weapon and one count of misdemeanour domestic violence.

He walked free on Thursday (18Oct12) after posting $23,000 (£14,375) bail, according to the Associated Press.

He is due to appear before the Las Vegas Justice Court on Monday (22Oct12).
