Flavor Flav doesn’t want anyone to get the impression that his arrest is as bad as it sounds.  In response to reports that he was arrested in Las Vegas after a routine traffic stop, Flav placed the blame on the officer.


Taking to Twitter to make his case, the rapper, reality star and restaurateur wrote, "I was on my way home from Benihana's I got pulled over by a curious Rookie A-- Cop."  Flav continued: "He found out I had a traffic warrant wanted to make a name for himself took me in and now I'm home laying my bed what's the big deal?!"


According to TMZ, Flav was arrested and placed in jail after the arresting officer noticed Flav had four warrants out for his arrest stemming from multiple traffic-related incidents.


Flav says those issues have been since been settled, noting, "At least, I cleared up my sh*t ... some people are still on the run!"
