LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas judge agreed to again postpone an evidence hearing for entertainer Flavor Flav on felony charges stemming from an October argument with his longtime girlfriend.

A lawyer appeared Thursday on behalf of the 53-year-old former rap and reality TV star while Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa reset the date to April 10. The hearing was also postponed in November.

Defense attorney Tony Abbatangelo said later he's hoping to settle the case.

Prosecutor Jake Merback says nothing is resolved so far.

The entertainer's legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr.

He's accused of pushing his girlfriend of eight years to the floor Oct. 17 and wielding two knives while allegedly chasing and threatening the woman's 17-year-old son.

He could face prison time on assault and child endangerment charges.
