MINEOLA, New York — A New York grand jury will consider whether to indict entertainer Flavor Flav for allegedly speeding to his mother's funeral.

Flav, whose real name is William Drayton, was arrested Jan. 9 on Long Island's Meadowbrook Parkway.

Police say the rapper and reality TV star was speeding and driving without a license, a felony. He also was charged with marijuana possession as a violation. He has pleaded not guilty.

His attorney, Indji Bessim (IHN'-jee BEHS'-ihm), has sought for several months to reach a plea agreement with prosecutors. She declined to comment Friday.

A spokesman for the district attorney declined to comment on plea negotiations.

Flav pleaded guilty in Las Vegas in April to reduced charges of threatening his girlfriend's teenage son.
