LVMPD spokeswoman Laura Meltzer says that a woman made a disturbance call at around 3:30 a.m. to report that she and her fiance entered into a physical altercation, and that the fiance was threatening her son with a knife. The fiance, it turned out, was William Drayton, Jr. — known to Public Enemy fans and VH1 viewers as Flava Flav.
