Police say the rapper-reality TV star was speeding and driving without a license, a felony, on Jan. 9 on Long Island’s Meadowbrook Parkway.
His attorney, Indji Bessim, says she’s still trying to work out an agreement with prosecutors to resolve the charges.
Flav, whose real name is William Drayton, pleaded guilty in Las Vegas last month to reduced charges of threatening his girlfriend’s teenage son.
He grumbled Friday that flights from there to New York were becoming expensive.
