Flavor Flav and Rick Springfield Arrested (Not at the Same Time)

by

TMZ is reporting that both Rick Springfield and Flavor Flav ran afoul of the law this weekend.

Flavor Flav was pulled over for a “routine traffic violation” on Friday night in Las Vegas, but arrested when he was found to have warrants for four outstanding traffic violations. He took to Twitter to protest that his initial “violation” was actually just the curiosity of a “Rookie Ass Cop” and that the violations have been settled.

More troublingly, Rick Springfield was pulled over last night in Los Angeles and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, just hours after appearing at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books to promote his memoir Late, Late at Night. TMZ also obtained his mug shot. Springfield has not yet commented on the matter.
