Funkmaster Flex

Arrested

Allegedly Shoved Woman

2/4/2011 5:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Famous hip-hop DJ Funkmaster Flex was arrested today in New York after a woman told police Flex pushed her, tried to break her phone ... and then sent her threatening messages.

Funkmaster Flex Arrested

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops responded to a domestic violence call from a 40-year-old woman in home in Westchester early this morning. 

When cops arrived, Flex was nowhere to be found ... but the woman insisted he went ballistic on her and left.

Cops managed to locate Flex a short time later -- and arrested him on charges of harassment, aggravated harassment and criminal mischief.

Flex was arraigned in Greenburgh Town Court a few hours ago and was released on $500 bail ... but he's been ordered to stay away from his accuser -- pending a hearing later this month.

His name should be "FLUNK MASTER." By the way, who is he? And does anybody really care about this idiot?

Too bad he doesn't live in L.A., he could have just told the cops he'd swing by next week to be arrested.

I am glad, he dissed Tupac about a couple of months ago. If he did what Tupac did for Hip-Hop I would not say a word. Usually what goes around comes around.

Woowww. How can you guys diss Flex like that? He has worked with some of the biggest Hip Hop and Rap artists in the game. 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Eminem, etc. His real name is Aston by the way haha. I wish the article would elaborate a bit. Basically it sounds like a women called the cops, made something up. And they took her word. Im not saying its not true, but it certainly sounds like all she had to do was say he did something and that means he did it. What does everybody else think?

Ryan, I'm from NYC and remember when Flex PUNCHED Steph Lover... a female radio DJ. They settled that one with the almighty dollar. I say this all to say that - this story is not farfetched. Im actually surprised he ONLY shoved her. Google the Steph Lover/Flex incident. It was big news about a good what ....eight years ago.

I bet a bunch of rappers who he never plays because they can't afford him hopes he gets taken down. Bullying women, never heard of that creep knuckling up with dudes. I guess we gotta hear him with his stupid apology on the radio soon. Hot 97 should pay him out and let him go, he aint HOT anymore anyway!

Wow, there's some serious racist comments in here. I thought the TMZ crowd was way cooler than what I'm seeing here.

Of course the woman is ALWAYS right...right? Haters say what you want but why judge the guy when we know NOTHING of the real details. To what extent was the shove? Maby she was threatening him and in his face so he pushed her out of his personal space. Who cares about a broken phone? Maby he found out she was CHEATING on him, would you blame anyone for that action? Whatever the scenario, its pointless to assume anything.

Funk Flex needs to past the 7 o clock shift to someone new.
He acts like hes the only Dj that puts it down. Thank God Clue is still on to at least mix it up.

Hang it up Flex! Love Ya for all the years you changed the game!
