LAS VEGAS (AP) — Attorneys for entertainer Flavor Flav say he’s working to stay sober following dismissal of a misdemeanor domestic battery charge stemming from a scuffle with his girlfriend at home in suburban Las Vegas. The 62-year-old former rapper and reality TV star’s legal name is William Drayton Jr. He pleaded no contest Wednesday in Henderson Municipal Court to a misdemeanor nonviolent coercion charge and paid $640 in fines. He was arrested late Oct. 4 at a home in Henderson. The alleged victim was identified as a woman with whom he has a dating relationship and a minor child in common. Her name was redacted in court and police documents.
