A Las Vegas judge has that a trial of Flavor Flav will move on, charging that the rapper threatened his fiancé and her 17-year-old son with a butcher knife.
The 54-year-old rapper will stand trial for a pair of felonies and faces up to 12 years in jail. On April 18, the famed Public Enemy hype man will be arraigned formally on felony charges of assault with a weapon and child endangerment.
Flav, real name William Jonathan Drayton Jr., is expected to plead not guilty.
Reports say he pushed his fiancé down to the ground in October and chased her and her son around with butcher knives in their Las Vegas home.
