Rapper Flavor Flav was arrested Friday night in Las Vegas after police discovered four outstanding warrants for his arrest.

According to TMZ, Flav, whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., was initially pulled over at 10:57 PM for a routine traffic violation.

But when police ran his name through the system, they discovered the warrants, which ranged from driving without proof of insurance, to a parking violation to two cases of driving without a license.

Flav was subsequently arrested and taken to a nearby jail, where he was eventually released.

In addition to his work with rap group Public Enemy, Flav is known for his appearances on a number of bizarre VH1 reality series, including the dating series 'Flavor of Love.'
