Flavor Flav was brutally attacked while visiting a casino in Las Vegas earlier this week.

According to TMZ, the rapper was enjoying a night out at the South Point Casino on Tuesday when he was attacked by a man named Ugandi Howard. Flav says that Howard accused him of insulting his mother; after that, Howard began wailing on Flav, punching him in the face and then kicking him after he falls to the floor.

Howard was eventually taken into custody by casino security; when cops arrived, he was cited for battery and then released. Flav suffered minor injuries, and told the police that the only reason Howard was able to get the drop on him is because he pulled a groin muscle.
