Young Buck was arrested in Cheatham County, Tennessee over Christmas on a felony fugitive from justice warrant.
The former G-Unit member spent the holidays behind bars after being taken into custody on December 20, reports suggest. Although arrested before Christmas, the news of his arrest broke late Thursday. The arrest comes after police pulled Buck’s car over when the officer claimed the car smelled of marijuana. While questioning the rapper whose real name is David Darnell Brown, he admitted he was in possession of marijuana. Despite this and considering the mitigating factors of cooperation, the officer dismissed the drugs charge.
However, a warrant issued in Georgia for the rappers arrest, which the officer followed through with executing. The charge from Georgia is unknown at the present time but Buck is now a felony fugitive. This means he will likely remain jailed until his court date set for May of next year.
Young Buck’s History With The Law May Go Against Him
Buck has an extensive history with the law. In 2004 at the VIBE Awards, he allegedly stabbed a man who assaulted Dr. Dre after he refused to sign an autograph. However, a combination of not enough evidence and a deal struck saw him not facing trial. On July 21, 2016, police arrested him for threatening behavior towards an ex-partner. In between these times, Young Buck spent 18 months in a Mississippi prison arrested on weapons charges.
This is a year that Buck will most certainly want to forget. Throughout 2019, Buck was embroiled in an online beef with former G-Unit band mate, 50 Cent. It came after 50 heard rumors of a relationship with a transgender woman. Buck took shots at his former boss on two diss tracks, ‘The Story Of Foofy’ and ‘Forty’. Will 50 Cent jump in on the latest drama in Buck’s life or leave him alone?
