Flavor Flav says his daughter, Dazayna Drayton, is getting a bad rap after her arrest this weekend, claiming she didn't lay a hand on him ... which she is accused of.
The whole thing was just a family dispute that got out of hand, Flav says.
Flav claims he tried to stop the cops from arresting Dazayna, but Nevada's zero tolerance law requires police to book anyone who allegedly strikes a family member.
"The whole thing was a big misunderstanding that shouldn't have happened," he says. "No one in my family called the cops on my daughter; she did not beat me up."
Flav, whose word must be taken with a grain of salt, as he is insane, makes it clear, "I love my daughter and will never let anything happen that could come between us."
Dazayna Drayton was booked for misdemeanor battery Sunday.
It's unclear who called the cops, but someone did after Flav's 19-year-old girl got into an argument with one his stepsons, which eventually became physical.
Flav tried to break it up and got hit by his daughter for his troubles - either on purpose or by accident (he's clearly saying the latter) - and authorities found enough evidence of domestic violence to take her into custody afterward.
