GREENBURGH — A well-known hip-hop DJ was arrested on domestic violence charges early Friday after a confrontation with his wife at their Greenburgh home, police said.
Aston G. Taylor, known as “Funkmaster Flex,” was picked up in his 2011 Chevrolet Camaro after his wife accused him of pushing her and sending threatening text messages.
Police were called to Taylor’s home at 5:10 a.m., where a 40-year-old woman said he’d pushed her to the floor in their bedroom. When she tried calling police, she said, Taylor smacked the phone out of her hand and stomped on it.
Taylor, 43, is charged with second-degree aggravated harassment and fourth-degree criminal mischief, misdemeanors, and second-degree harassment, a violation. He posted $500 at his arraignment in Town Court and is due back in court Feb. 18.
Taylor has been a top DJ at Hot 97 in New York City for years and has released several albums. He was featured on “Yo! MTV Raps” in the 1990s and in recent years had his own car-themed television shows on Spike TV and ESPN.
