UGH, this does not sound good. He allegedly threatened someone with a knife and physically assaulted another … in his own home … not good, not at all. I wouldn’t at all be surprised if alcohol was involved but … I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about this sad incident and subsequent sad arrest. Flav, what happened to you man?
