LAS VEGAS (AP) - Entertainer Flavor Flav is free from a Las Vegas jail pending a court appearance next week on felony assault and misdemeanor domestic battery charges.

A court clerk says the former hip-hop and reality TV star whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr. is due in Las Vegas Justice Court on Monday.

Drayton was released on bail from the Clark County jail before a scheduled Thursday morning court appearance.

Drayton is accused of throwing his fiancee to the floor and wielding knives as he chased and threatened to kill her 17-year-old son during an argument early Wednesday at their home in Las Vegas.

Drayton told police he scuffled with the woman and her son but denied chasing or threatening the teen.

It's not clear if Drayton has a lawyer.
