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.

President Obama has nominated attorney Debo Adegbile to head the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. Adegbile has a long history of advocating for the release of unrepentant and convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Just another 0bama thug let go thanks to the race card!

Never leave home without it!

I give this guy credit: ugly as sin, but somehow made sort of a success of himself. Although I still don't know what he does. Don't care enough to even google him.

Did he's mother really die tho? Regardless, if that was me.. I'd be handcuffed, thrown in back of the cop car and booked! And late for my mother's funeral!
