    Police in Las Vegas say a 44-year-old man who served prison time for manslaughter faces a misdemeanor battery charge in an attack involving entertainer Flavor Flav at a casino.

    Officer Laura Meltzer said Thursday the rapper and reality television star, whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., was treated at a hospital for minor injuries after the late Tuesday incident at the South Point.

    Meltzer says the alleged attacker, Ugandi Howard, was given a summons to appear March 6 in Las Vegas Justice Court.

    Meltzer confirmed that Howard served prison time in Nevada for manslaughter and gang affiliation charges. Prison records show he was released in 2005.
