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 doubt he 23,000 to his name. He is wanted for back child support. By the looks of him, he looks 1 step from homeless.

If he's of alleged "Star" quality to have been reported on by name...
1. It can't be because of his teeth. EEEEUUUUU!!!
2. Has America's sense of talent and/or good taste in
role models for our children thusly bottomed out?
