LAS VEGAS (AP) — Entertainer Flavor Flav is poised to take a plea deal that would avoid trial in a Las Vegas domestic violence case.

A prosecutor and defense attorneys say the 55-year-old former rapper and reality TV star, whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., is scheduled to enter a plea Monday in Clark County District Court. Neither side provided details of the deal.

He is accused of chasing and threatening his longtime girlfriend’s 17-year-old son with a butcher knife during an October 2012 argument.

He was facing trial April 28 on felony assault and child endangerment with a weapon charges that carry the possibility of up to 12 years in prison.

Flavor Flav was inducted last year with the rap group Public Enemy into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
