Exclusive Details

0109-mug-shot-flava-flavFlavor Flav was arrested today in Hempstead, NY in a bizarre bust ... triggered by the fact Flav had 16 suspensions on his license -- yes, 16.

According to cops ... Flav was driving a black Hyundai when cops spotted him ... claiming he was driving 79 in a 55 zone.  

Upon further investigation ... troopers discovered Flav had 16 license suspensions.  Law enforcement tells TMZ ... Flav had a variety of unpaid tickets that resulted in the suspensions.  In addition, they found a small amount of marijuana.

Flav was arrested for felony aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle.  He was booked, released without bail and went on to attend his mother's funeral.

We don't know how he got to his mom's funeral -- hoping he didn't drive.

Gesus Freakin H, TMZ, why not get your shyte together before bloody posting an ever changing headline, you've got "EXCLUSIVE DETAILS". What details? You've changed the damn story three times. What's next, a complete pull down of the post until you get it right. You need to slow the "F" down and try to at least look like your staff has a High School Education.

He should be in jail, regardless of why his license was suspended. A classmate of my daughter's was killed 1 year ago, walking to the bus stop when a driver with her license suspended in three states hit him. As, his younger brother witnessed it all happen. If she wasn't on the road, he may still be alive today. I hope she lives in guilt for the rest of her life for killing a 17 year old boy who had his entire future ahead of him and was planning on going into the Army when he graduated in 6 months, but she took it all from him, not to mention the emptiness left within his family. I don't find it forgivable because she stopped, human decency is to stop. Flav, you should be in jail!!

Good lord that's one ugly man. And wtf is aggravated unlicensed operation? Was he driving upset and threatened to kill the car? Unlicensed operation suffices.
