Flavor Flav faced 12 years in jail for threatening the 17 year old son of Flav's now ex-girlfriend with a butcher knife. That sounds like one hell of a party. I'm guessing the kid must have messed around with one of Flav's clocks. Seriously, who just pulls out a butcher knife for an argument with a teenager? The felony assault charges that Flav faced were reduced in his plea to misdemeanor battery. Instead of the 12 years in jail he faced if he went to trial, now all Flav has to do is take four months of domestic violence counseling and got put on probation. The incident, which happened back in 2012 involved Flavor pushing his girlfriend to the floor and then chasing the teen with the butcher knife. This was about a week after his girlfriend overdosed while filming Couples Therapy.
