After apparently failing to reach a plea agreement following his indictment, Rapper Flavor Flav is scheduled to appear in a Long Island courtroom on Jan. 21 on charges stemming from a traffic stop a year ago while driving to his mother's funeral.

The Associated Press reported that court documents show the rapper, whose real name is William Drayton, was indicted last month on a felony charge of driving with a suspended license. He also faces a speeding violation and two misdemeanors for aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

A spokesman for Nassau County acting District Attorney Madeline Singas declined to comment. The spokesman confirmed Drayton's upcoming court appearance.

Drayton's attorney, who has been seeking to reach a plea agreement, declined to comment.

The rapper-reality TV star from Roosevelt, New York, was arrested Jan. 9, 2014, on the Meadowbrook Parkway.
