Judge closes Flavor Flav battery case in Las Vegas
August 19, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — A Nevada judge has closed a criminal case against Flavor Flav, after she was told the 55-year-old rapper and reality TV star completed a required domestic violence counseling course.

The entertainer, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., wasn’t in court Monday when attorneys Kristina Wildeveld and Dayvid Figler filed final documents in the October 2012 case.

Drayton pleaded guilty in April to attempted battery and battery constituting domestic violence, misdemeanors, for wielding a kitchen knife during a home argument with his longtime girlfriend’s 17-year-old son.

Prosecutors dropped felony assault and child endangerment charges that could have gotten Drayton up to 12 years in prison. He served probation and underwent counseling.

Drayton still could face separate charges in New York stemming from a Jan. 9 speeding arrest on Long Island.
