Flavor Flav has been arrested in Las Vegas on suspicion of driving under the influence, possession of marijuana and having an open container of alcohol in his car.
Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Loy Hixon said the 56-year-old rapper was pulled over at 12.30am on Thursday after driving at 73mph (117kmph) in a 45mph (72 kmph) zone.
Flav also had a suspended driver’s licence and registration, Mr Hixon said.
He was arrested on six charges – all misdemeanours – and online police records show that he has posted bail.
Flav’s legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr.
His Las Vegas lawyer, Kristina Wildeveld, said she had no comment to offer regarding her client’s arrest but said she is working to resolve an ongoing case in New York that also involves driving-related charges.
Legal troubles have added up for the rapper and reality star, known for wearing large clocks around his neck.
He is facing a felony charge of driving with a suspended licence in New York state after he was stopped for speeding on the way to his mother’s funeral in January 2014.
