Young Buck To Stand Trial

On Monday, a Los Angeles judge ruled that rapper Young Buck would stand trial for an alleged stabbing during the 2004 VIBE Awards.

Superior Court Judge James Dabney told the court that enough evidence was presented to warrant a jury trial. The ordeal was captured on several television cameras as VIBE prepared to present Dr. Dre with a lifetime achievement honor.

The prosecution charges that Young Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, stabbed Los Angeles parolee Jimmy James Johnson after Johnson allegedly punched Aftermath Records chief Dr. Dre.

Johnson reportedly requested an autograph from Dre as he was preparing to go on stage to receive his award. When Dre initially declined, Johnson punched him.

The attack triggered a huge brawl in the midst of the show.

Young Buck, who is a member in 50 Cent’s G-Unit, has pleaded not guilty to assault charges. Last year, Young Buck released his solo debut, Straight Outta Ca$hville.
