Public Enemy hype man Flavor Flav was arrested in Las Vegas early Thursday on six charges, all misdemeanors, the AP reports. Authorities said the charges against Flav, 56, included allegations of DUI, speeding, possessing weed, and having an open container of alcohol in the car. A Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman told the AP that Flav was initially pulled over around 12:30 a.m. for going 73 miles per hour in a 45 zone. Upon inspection, officers also discovered that the reality-TV star had a suspended driver's license and registration; Flav reportedly posted the $7,000 bail shortly thereafter in Vegas. This incident aside, Flav's currently working to resolve another driving-related charge that occurred last year in New York — a felony, for which he could face up to four years if convicted.
