It's been a rough couple of weeks for William Jonathan Drayton, Jr, better known as Flavor Flav. On Friday night, he was arrested in Las Vegas after being pulled over by police for a routine traffic stop.


According to TMZ, the rapper had several traffic violations that were unpaid, leading to outstanding warrants for his arrest. The four tickets were all unrelated, and include a ticket for a parking violation, two for driving without a license, and one for not having insurance. Flav was taken to a nearby jail but has since been released.


Flav's recent arrest adds to the list of troubles he's been going through with regards to his chicken business. His Iowa chicken restaurant, Flavor Flav's Fried Chicken was closed after only four months. First, employees accused Flav of bouncing checks. Then, his former partner called him a "fraud," saying he didn't contribute much to the business. According to reports, Flav is opening another restaurant called Flavor Flav's House Of Flavor.
