flavor flav mug Flavor Flav arrested in Las VegasComing so close after the closing of his Flav’s Fried Chicken restaurant, Flavor Flav’s arrest in Las Vegas on Friday (April 29) is probably more “Oh crap” than “O.G.”

Flav — aka William Drayton, Jr. — was pulled over for a routine traffic violation when, according to TMZ, cops noticed the rapper/reality TV staple/entrepreneur was wanted on four outstanding warrants.

Nothing too sketchy, just traffic offenses: driving without proof of insurance, a parking violation and two cases of driving without a license. Still, it was enough to snag Flav a new mug shot. After processing, he was released and was not required to stay in jail.

On Monday, Flav tweeted his take on the arrest — accusing a “curious rookie cop” of pulling him over:
