DJ Funkmaster Flex was arrested Friday after assaulting his wife at his Westchester home, police said. He attempted to break her cell phone and also threatened her.
A woman who identified herself as Flex’s wife told Greenburgh Town police that she and Flex got into a fight over threatening texts he sent Thursday night, police said.
The fight escalated at the couple’s Ardsley, NY, home, and the hip-hop star pushed the woman to the ground, cops said.
She grabbed her cell phone to call police, but Flex apparently slapped it out of her hands and stomped it, cops said.
He fled the house before police arrived, but officers later found him “a short distance away in his vehicle, a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro,” cops said.
He was arrested on three counts of criminal mischief and harassment, cops said. Flex, born Aston George Taylor Jr., was arraigned in Greenburgh Town Court Friday and released on $500 bail.
He was ordered to stay away from the woman, police said.
“Man I never thought I’d be posting this,” Flex wrote on his blog Friday along with his mug shot.
The New York City native first appeared on “Yo! MTV Raps” in the 1990s and has been a fixture in hip-hop ever since.
