Flavor Flav Pleads No Contest to DUI Charges

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, rapper Flavor Flav pleaded no contest to a DUI charge in connection with his arrest on a Las Vegas freeway.

He appeared in court wearing a large red clock around his neck, five rings, a wide black and gold watch, a black and gray coat, a blue shirt, dark gray jeans, gray Nike high tops and holding a red New York Yankees cap.

Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Suzan Baucum ordered Flav to pay a $685 fine, undergo a victim-impact panel and complete DUI classes. Prosecutors dropped speeding and open-container charges.

A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper reportedly spotted the 56-year-old Las Vegas man driving on Interstate 15 in May 2015. Flav was first seen heading north on the frontage road near Blue Diamond Road at 73 mph in a 45 mph zone, then 87 mph in a 55 mph zone, according to Highway Patrol.

The trooper who performed the stop said Flav was driving under the influence. Defense lawyers Kristina Wildeveld and Dayvid Figler said Flav had a marijuana metabolite in his system.
