Nevada Highway Patrol spokesperson Loy Hixson says the 56-year-old performer -- whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr. -- was pulled over for driving 73 mph in a 45 mph zone near McCarran International Airport.
In addition to allegedly speeding and being in possession of marijuana and an open container of booze, Flavor Flav was also reportedly driving on a suspended license and vehicle registration. He was arrested on six charges, and has since posted bail.
This is the latest in a long line of legal troubles the rapper has run into in recent years, including a felony charge of driving with a suspended license in New York which he's still facing.
He also pled guilty during a domestic violence case in March 2014 after threatening his longtime girlfriend's son with a knife. He agreed to counseling and probation and the charges were reduced.
