Drayton is accused of throwing his fiancée to the floor and wielding knives as he chased and threatened to kill her 17-year-old son during an argument early Wednesday at their home in Las Vegas.

Drayton told a police officer he scuffled with the woman and her son but denied chasing or threatening the teen.

It's not clear if Drayton has a lawyer.
