Flavor Flav

I Was Targeted by

'Rookie Ass Cop'

5/2/2011 11:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Flavor Flav says the only reason he was arrested Friday night is because some "curious Rookie Ass Cop" wanted to make a name for himself.

Flav just went to his Twitter to explain how he ended up behind bars ... saying, "I was on my home from Benihana's I got pulled over by a curious Rookie Ass 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?!"

TMZ broke the story ... Flav was arrested and hauled into a Vegas jail after he was pulled over for a routine traffic stop ... and the cop noticed Flav had four warrants out for his arrest stemming from various traffic-related incidents. .

Apparently, Flav settled all of the outstanding issues -- because he also tweeted, "At least, I cleared up my sh*t ... some people are still on the run!"

The arresting officer was helping humanity by relieving the world of bad “entertainers”

If he would have taken care of his business before hand he wouldn't have had to get taken to jail. Don't try to show responsibility after you got caught for being a slacker!

I'm so amazed by the fact that this b*tch is still relevant.
He does nothing, IMO. His music SUCKS and he is one of the ugliest beasts ever.
Not to mention he's just an annoying fool.
Vile.

How could he miss court, he wears a 12 inch clock around his neck. Maybe somebody needs to tell him how it works.
