Flavor Flav allegedly attacked at South Point in Las Vegas

Posted by Neil Shouse | Jan 24, 2018 | 0 Comments

A few hours ago Ugandi Howard was arrested for allegedly attacking rapper Flavor Flav at the South Point Casino. Flavor Flav, whose real name is William Drayton, Jr., sustained minor injuries. Howard is facing charges of misdemeanor battery.

Howard reportedly hit Flavor Flav in the head and then kicked him. This followed an alleged altercation where Flavor Flav disrespected Howard's mother. It is believed that surveillance video from the hotel captured the incident on tape.

"It is important not to rush to judgment in these high-profile, celebrity cases," said Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Michael Becker about this matter. "Private citizens deserve the presumption of innocence just as much as public figures do. Perhaps Howard was acting in self-defense or is the victim of false accusations. A thorough investigation of the evidence is necessary."
