MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) Flavor Flav has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a New York traffic stop last year while he was driving to his mother's funeral.

The rapper and reality TV star appeared in court Wednesday wearing a trademark clock around his neck and a baseball cap. He declined to discuss the allegations but told reporters, "I don't like the circumstances, but I like the attention" as a throng of fans snapped his picture.

Flav was indicted last month on a felony charge of driving with a suspended license. He also faces a speeding violation and two misdemeanors for driving without a license.

Prosecutors say Flav had his license suspended 15 times before being stopped Jan. 9, 2014.

He was released without bail. His next court date is Feb. 3.
