MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — A New York grand jury will consider whether to indict entertainer Flavor Flav. He was arrested while allegedly speeding to his mother's Long Island funeral.

Flav, whose real name is William Drayton, was arrested Jan. 9 on Long Island's Meadowbrook Parkway.

Police say the rapper-reality TV star was speeding and driving without a license, a felony. He also was charged with marijuana possession as a violation. He has pleaded not guilty.

His attorney, Indji Bessim, has sought for several months to reach a plea agreement with prosecutors. She declined comment Friday.

A spokesman for the district attorney declined to comment on plea negotiations.

Flav pleaded guilty in Las Vegas in April to reduced charges of threatening his girlfriend's teenage son.
