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.

I used to be his personal assistant ..I told Flavor Flav to leave that girl alone she is no good. She was never there for him at all never supported him and took care of him how a woman should take there man. I hope he realizes whats best for him because obviously she isnt and never will be.

I used to be Flavs personal assistant ... I told him years ago to leave that girl alone.... She was never there for him like a woman should be there for her man. Im not suprised he went behind bars because of her. Hopefully when he gets out he realizes whats more important in his life because its Liz or her son.
