TMZ reported officers stopped the celebrity motorist for speeding Thursday and discovered he had 16 suspensions on his license, stemming from unpaid tickets, as well as a small amount of marijuana in his vehicle.

Flav was arrested on a charge of felony aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, then was booked and released without bail so he could attend his mother's funeral, the entertainment news website said.

No information was immediately available regarding his mother's death.
