    Fight the power? For Flavor Flav, It’s more like fight the charges.

    A Las Vegas judge has ordered everyone’s favorite clock-wearing rapper to stand trial for allegedly threatening his longtime girlfriend’s teenage son with a butcher’s knife.

    Per a report in the Las Vegas Sun, Justice of the Peace Melanie Andress-Tobiasson found during a hearing on Wednesday that there was enough evidence for Flav, whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., to be tried in state court on felony charges of assault with a weapon and child endangerment.

    NEWS: Flavor Flav arrested for alleged assault with a deadly weapon

    Flav was arrested on Oct. 17, 2012, after allegedly getting into a fight that turned violent with his girlfriend, Elizabeth Trujillo, whom he’s lived with for eight years.

    According to the allegations, the Public Enemy member shoved the woman to the ground and was confronted by her 17-year-old son. At that point, the hip-hopster was said to have grabbed a butcher’s knife, a steak knife and a pizza cutter, chased the boy to a bedroom and threatened his life, stabbing the bedroom door with a knife.

    The teenager—a 6-foot 3-inch, 200-pound high school football and basketball player whose name is being withheld because he’s underage—testified during Wednesday’s proceeding that he intervened during the 3 a.m. spat to protect his mom. He described for the court how the two pushed each other and how he put Flav into a headlock in the kitchen, as well as the obscenity Flav used when he made his alleged threat.
