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!"

@Muppet, THANK YOU, I am still laughing. We had "I Don't Know" in our house when we were kids, must have gone to the same place?

The cop was curious because he wasn't sure if it was human or a burnt cat.

LOL Make a name for himself by arresting that stain?? Gimme a break. Flav is ugly, nasty and stupid, the trifecta of lowlifes. Pay your debts and go away.

The only people that make money from all of this celeb gossip and drama is TV. I would like to think normal people fly above that kind of drama. His charges (if you read the paper or listen to the news) are not even almost as severe as a real criminal. Gee whiz, the guy gets a ticket and people are chomping at the bit to say as many negetive things as they can think of about the man.
