Rapper Flavor Flav on Tuesday pleaded not guilty to two domestic violence charges he faces on allegations that he threatened his fiancee’s 17-year-old son with a butcher knife in October.
A trial date was set for Sept. 30 before Judge Carolyn Ellsworth.
The artist, whose real name is William Drayton, did not comment following the brief arraignment hearing.
Drayton, 53, faces one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and child abuse and neglect. If convicted, he could get prison time.
Drayton is best known as the hype man for iconic hip-hop group Public Enemy and was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
A second misdemeanor domestic violence case against Drayton involving his fiancee, Elizabeth Trujillo, is set to move forward in July.
