Flavor Flav was arrested in Las Vegas early this morning and changed with assault with a deadly weapon. Geez, and we thought confusing Miley Cyrus with Gwen Stefani was bad. According to reports on TMZ, the 53-year old former rapper and reality star was involved in vicious argument with a teenager in his Nevada home. The teenager’s fiancee was also present, and as tempers flared she called the police around 3 AM. Details are sparse at the moment, but Flav apparently beat one of the two, and threatened the other with a knife. He was arrested on the scene for battery and felony assault with a deadly weapon, and is currently being held on $23,000 bail. It’s also unknown what Flavor Flav’s relationship is to the teenagers, if any.
This is not Flavor Flav’s first brush with assault. In 1991 he was charged with assaulting his girlfriend Karen Ross, and served 30 days in jail as a result. Two years later he was charged with attempted murder for firing shots at his neighbor. Most of his violent offenses seemed to wind down in the late nineties after he went to rehab for crack cocaine, but that didn’t stop his run-ins with the law. He’s received a number of parking and driving offenses, resulting in his arrest in May of last year. We’ll bring you more updates on this bust as soon as we hear!

His Glamness Adam Lambert was arrested in Finland last month following a massive fight with his partner Sauli Koskinen outside of a club. The incident landed them both in jail, but now Glambert says things are fine between the two and chalks the whole thing up to much booze. He opened up about the experience on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this afternoon.
“What happened was, we had too much to drink. We screwed up,” he told Ellen. “There were no injuries, no violence. It was more of childish, foolish, messiness.” The argument between Adam and Sauli started in the Helsinki club DTM, but grew even more heated once they got booted out. When onlookers tried to intervene, Adam reportedly attacked them. Police were called, which resulted with several hours of jail time.”When you add alcohol to a situation, things can get out of control and some people can get upset and emotional,” he continued.
But things are still great between the couple, who were recently named the FABLife’s weekly Hotness. “I was a little irresponsible and I think what I learned from the experience was that I owe it to myself, to my loved ones, and to my fans to be a little more adult and pull it together.” Head under the jump to see what else Adam has to say!

Soulja Boy was arrested early this morning for possession of massive amounts of marijuana in his car. For those of you who have seen this video, this probably comes as the least surprising news of the decade. The 21-year-old rapper was driving with four friends in Temple, Georgia, when police pulled him over at 3:15 a.m. for a routine traffic violation. But when officers peered into the side window, they spotted “a substantial amount of marijuana and cash inside the car.” Arresting officers told TMZ that the money totaled more than $70,000! Damn. But we guess that’s chump change for a dude who just bought a $55 million jet as a birthday present for himself.
Authorities also found guns in the car, but it’s unclear whether or not they were licensed. Regardless, Soulja (real name DeAndre Cortez Way) and his friends were hauled into Carrol County Jail, where they’re currently being held. Today also marks the release of his DVD, Soulja Boy: The Movie. “Today is gonna be busy and huge very historical lots of interviews to be done,” he tweeted last night before the bust. Well, you’re right about the interviews part, Soulja. Although we think it’s called “questioning”…
The investigation is still pending, but we’ll report back.

Vincent Crabbe, noooooo! E! is reporting on Harry Potter actor Jamie Waylett’s arrest and while we don’t want to immediately blame Voldemort, this crime has his scaly fingerprints all over it. Known to most as Draco Malfoy’s dopey henchman, Waylett was arrested for possessing a petrol bomb on August 8, 2011 during the London riots, in addition to, um, well, growing 15 marijuana plants in his bedroom. But clearly some malicious wizard must have put them there! If only we were still able to practice law, we could represent him in court!
Unfortunately this isn’t Waylett’s first arrest. After facing pot charges in 2009, his character was written out of Harry Potter And The Dealthy Hallows: Part 2. Just goes to show that some can’t resist the dark side. At least Waylett won’t have to destroy The Boy Who Lived in order to assume control of the wizarding world. Because that seems like it would definitely be a felony.
We called it; Audrina Patridge did indeed celebrate her birthday with a splashy fun-in-the-sun bikini bash! And nothing at all could ruin her day, not even the arrest of her boyfriend, Corey Bohan. The BMX biker and occasional Audrina-beau was busted on Friday for public intoxication on Hermosa Beach, TMZ is reporting. He even spent eight hours in jail before being released on $500 bail.
”I absolutely hate what jack Daniels does to people:( jack is a bad bad man!!!” Audrina tweeted about the incident. Then she put on a brave face and a bikini to celebrate her birthday at the WET Republic Pool in Las Vegas’s MGM Grand. Duty calls, after all. Check out the hotness in the galley below!
