YOUNG BUCK TO STAND TRIAL

YOUNG BUCK TO STAND TRIAL

June 7, 2005

A California judge ruled Monday that rapper Young Buck — accused of stabbing Jimmy James Johnson, the Los Angeles man who allegedly attacked hip-hop impresario Dr. Dre during November’s second annual Vibe Awards ceremony — must stand trial on a single blankault charge.

Judge James Dabney found there was sufficient evidence to try Buck, born David Darnell Brown, according to a report by The blankociated Press. The 24-year-old rapper is due back in court for arraignment Tuesday (June 7).

Young Buck pleaded not guilty to the charge back in January. He faces up to eight years in prison if convicted. Johnson, who was charged with the blankault on Dre, was also ordered to stand trial last month; he, too, maintains his innocence.

Authorities claim Johnson punched Dre several times in the face when the legendary producer refused to sign an autograph for him. The attack set off a chair-heaving brawl that spread to involve many of the 1,000 audience members in attendance. Police were called in to restore calm and used pepper spray to disperse the crowd. At some point during the commotion, Young Buck allegedly stabbed Johnson in the chest, collapsing one of his lungs.

Outside the courthouse on Monday, Buck’s defense attorney Leonard Levine told reporters that he was “confident” that “when all the truth comes out, he’ll be exonerated.”

Young Buck briefly went into hiding after the incident, but later surrendered himself to Santa Monica, California, police back in November. He’s been free on $500,000 bail since his initial arrest.
