Young Buck Reaches Plea

Young Buck reportedly

reached a plea agreement in assault with a deadly weapon case stemming from an

incident at the Vibe Awards last November in Santa Monica, California.

Buck, born David Darnell Brown, stood accused of stabbing Los Angeles parolee

Jimmy James Johnson after Johnson allegedly punched Aftermath Records CEO Dr.

Dre, as was accepting Vibe’s Living Legend Award.

Dre was preparing to go on stage to receive a lifetime achievement

award when Johnson requested an autograph from the infamous rapper/producer,

then punched him when Dre refused, according to reports.

On Friday, Darnell’s attorney told Nashville’s News 2

that the agreement reached was "favorable,” but no further details

will be provided until the rapper’s December 12 court appearance.

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 in the attack and was formally charged with a felony assault

charge for striking Dre in the face.

Buck faces

up to eight years in prison if convicted of the charges.
