Flavor Flav introduces Leon Spinks as he is inducted into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame at the fifth annual induction gala at Caesars Palace on Aug. 12, 2017 in Las Vegas.

Reality star and Public Enemy rapper Flavor Flav was involved in a fight with a man while visiting a Las Vegas casino earlier this week, TMZ reports. 

The incident took place on Tuesday (Jan. 23) at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas. In the alleged video from the scene, Flavor Flav is seen on the floor as his attacker Uganda Howard repeatedly hits Flav in the head. Howard accused Flav of disrespecting his mother, which led him to confront the 53-year-old rapper. 

Flav told officers Howard repeatedly punched him and kicked him, and only fell to the ground after pulling his groin muscle. Flav sustained minor injuries and went to the hospital to get checked out; Howard was taken into custody. 

In other news, Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" is one of 25 titles being inducted into the 2018 Grammy Hall of Fame. Dr. Dre's 1992 album The Chronic and Whitney Houston's single "I Will Always Love You" is among the list of inductees.
