Former G-Unit rapper Young Buck is facing a 10 year bid after being indicted on Monday, March 7th. The Tennesee native was found to be in possession of a .40 caliber pistol and ammunition, which is a serious offence for a convicted felon. Buck has plead not guilty to the charges and has been released on $100,000 bond after surrendering his passport.
Nashville’s WSMV Channel 4 reported that Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, appeared before a Judge in handcuffs on Monday. Although prosecutors unsealed the indictment yesterday, the incident leading to the charges occurred August 3rd, when Federal agents raided his home over a $300,000 tax dispute with the IRS.
Buck’s prior felony conviction stems from his infamous stabbing of Jimmy Lee Johnson after he punched Dr. Dre at the 2004 Vibe Awards.
