Trial has actually been delayed to Feb. 8 for entertainer Flavor Flav on misdemeanor driving under the influence, speeding and drug charges stemming from a car stop last May in Las Vegas.

Prosecutors and defense lawyer Dayvid Figler said the new date enables time to try to fix the case against the 56-year-old rap artist and fact tv star whose name is William Drayton Jr.

. The Nevada Highway Patrol says the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame conscript was clocked going 87 miles per hour in a 65 miles per hour zone.

Drayton settled criminal charges this week in New york city’s Nassau County originating from a traffic stop while racing to his mom’s funeral service on Long Island.

He pleaded guilty Tuesday to an unlicensed driver charge, was fined about $3,600 and sentenced to time currently served.
