When cops arrived, they “sifted their way through the smoke and located Flav, who was still clutching a lighter in his hand,” according to TMZ.

The Public Enemy rapper was cooperative with police, who let him and the neighbors off with a warning to stop lighting the fireworks and clear out of the street.

Flav told TMZ, “We had a good time watching my fireworks show and everything ended safely. Cops came a few times but didn’t arrest me … thank God (and the police)!!”
