Young Buck Surrenders, Expected To Post 500k Bail

G-Unit member Young

Buck has surrendered to Santa Monica, California police in connection with a stabbing

at The 2nd Annual Vibe Awards.

According to Lt.

Frank Fabrega, the rapper turned himself in this afternoon (November 19) and

is expected to post $500,000 bail.

An arrest warrant

was issued shortly after the incident for the Nashville, Tennessee native, after

police identified him on a videotape stabbing Jimmy James Johnson.

Johnson allegedly

punched Buck’s mentor, Dr. Dre, as he was accepting Vibe’s Living

Legend Award.

The assault on

Dr. Dre resulted in a melee in a hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, where the

awards show was being taped.

Johnson suffered

a collapsed lung and is currently in the hospital recovering. Authorities plan

to question him in relation to the assault on Dr. Dre, but published reports

suggested that Johnson was not yet healthy enough to talk.

Young Buck’s

debut album Straight Outta Cashville debuted at #3 on Billboard’s

Pop Chart. His Lil’ Jon produced single “Shorty Wanna Ride”

is currently # 6 on Billboard’s Hot Rap Tracks chart.
