Young Buck Faces Assault Trial

Rapper Young Buck will stand trial on an assault charge for allegedly stabbing a man during a brawl at last year’s Vibe Awards.

He was scheduled to be arraigned June 7th.

The rapper, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, is accused of stabbing Jimmy James Johnson, allegedly because Johnson punched Brown’s mentor, Dr. Dre, during the November 15th awards show.

If convicted, Brown faces up to eight years in prison.

Johnson pleaded not guilty to an assault charge stemming from the fight.
