MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - Entertainer Flavor Flav must return to his native New York 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 TV star was speeding and driving without a license, a felony, on Jan. 9 on the Meadowbrook Parkway on Long Island.

Flav, whose real name is William Drayton, told reporters as he entered a Nassau County courtroom on Tuesday that he hoped to resolve the case. Drayton, who lives in Las Vegas, grumbled that flights from there to New York were becoming expensive.

His attorney, Indji Bessim, says the case was postponed to May 16.

Drayton also faces felony assault and other charges in Las Vegas after allegedly threatening his longtime girlfriend's teenage son.
