Those who study domestic violence often say that abuse happens to all types of people, no matter their income, race or gender. Georgia families are no different from anyone else in the country. Often, people tend to forget that public figures experience the same triggers that might cause them to resort to violence -- trouble with money, substance abuse or a past history of violence -- just like those who are not famous may face. This was seen in the recent example of rapper Flavor Flav having accusations of domestic violence made against him.
The incident in question happened about a year and a half ago when Flavor Flav was accused of being involved in a disagreement in his house in Nevada. He was arrested and charged with abuse, battery domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon, though the charges were later reduced. It is unclear who exactly Flavor Flav was involved in the argument with, though he is now required to go to counseling with the teenage son of his girlfriend.
