*Flavor Flav will have to catch a flight across country at least one more time to answer charges stemming from his arrest as he raced to his mother’s funeral.

Police say the rapper and reality star was speeding and driving without a license, a felony, on Jan. 9 on the Meadowbrook Parkway on Long Island. His attorney, Indji Bessim, says the case has been postponed to May 16, reports the AP.

Flav, whose real name is William Drayton, told reporters as he entered a Nassau County courtroom Tuesday that he hoped to resolve the case.

The rapper, who lives in Las Vegas, complained that flights from there to New York were becoming expensive.

At least he will save some money with his felony assault case, which takes place in Vegas. Flav faces that charge and others after allegedly threatening his longtime girlfriend’s teenage son.
