LAS VEGAS (AP) — Entertainer Flavor Flav has pleaded guilty to reduced charges in a Las Vegas domestic violence case in a move that will avoid a trial and possible jail time. The 55-year-old rapper and reality TV star acknowledged today in Clark County District Court that he wielded a kitchen knife during an October 2012 argument at home with his longtime girlfriend's 17-year-old son. A judge sentenced him to probation and four more months of domestic violence counseling.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada rancher says he's trying to determine whether federal agents damaged any of his cattle before they released hundreds of rounded-up bovines in a showdown with angry protesters over the weekend. Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze says the agency released the cattle to avoid a potentially violent situation in a decades-long dispute over states' rights and grazing on public lands. He says Cliven (KLEYE'-vihn) Bundy owes more than $1 million in grazing fees for trespassing on federal lands since the 1990s.
