Flavor Flav is in trouble once again for domestic violence.

The Public Enemy co-founder was arrested earlier this month in Henderson, Nevada, on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery, according to TMZ.

The alleged victim, who has not been identified, claims that he grabbed her and threw her to the ground.

Flav’s attorney, David Chesnoff, told TMZ, “In alleged domestic violence cases, there are often 2 sides to the story, and we will explain our side in the courtroom and not in the media.”

This is the fourth time Flav has been arrested for domestic violence.

In 2012, he pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor domestic violence charges for assaulting his then-fiancée Elizabeth Trujillo and threatening her teenage son with a knife.

In 1991, Flavor pleaded guilty to assaulting his then-girlfriend Karen Ross, which resulted in a jail stint and losing custody of his children at the time. Two years later, he was arrested again for domestic violence, along with cocaine and marijuana charges.

As news of his arrest was being reported, the 62-year-old former reality TV star declared Tuesday on Instagram that he’s been sober for one year.

“1 year up, lotz more to go,” Flav wrote. “Next year I pray my whole family will be walkin the same path I am.”
