Flavor Flav was arrested early this morning in Vegas after allegedly threatening a teenager in his house with a deadly weapon, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the teenager is the son of Flav's fiancee -- and the rapper had allegedly gotten into a heated verbal argument with both the teenager and his mom before it turned violent.

According to police, Flav -- real name William Drayton Jr. -- is accused of getting physical with his fiancee and then threatening her son with a knife. During the altercation, the fiancee called 911.

Flav was arrested around 3am and booked on two charges -- felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor domestic violence (battery).

He's currently being held on $23,000 bail.

Wow ...    

Doesn't he have a history of violence? Perhaps he should find some new coping skills. You know, some that do not end with him under arrest or cause harm to others.

I like his humor. He can be funny when he wants to be. But he looks a little like an older woman in that pic. Also really not a good way to start a marriage. You have to wonder what people are thiking somethimes.
