LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A police report says entertainer Flavor Flav threw his fiancee to the floor twice and wielded two knives while chasing and threatening to kill her 17-year-old son during an argument in Las Vegas.

The report obtained Wednesday says the 53-year-old former hip-hop and reality television star cut his finger with one of the knives before police arrived about 3:30 a.m.

The star, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton, was arrested Wednesday on felony assault and misdemeanor domestic battery charges.

Police say the woman had an earring ripped out during the fracas. The teen ran to his sister's bedroom, where he told police Drayton kicked in the door.

Drayton denied threatening the teen.

Drayton is being held at the Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance on Thursday.
