Young Buck in Trouble With U.S. Probation After Traffic Stop
The ‘Straight Outta Cashville’ creator received two speeding tickets in the states and failed to report the incidents to the U.S. Probation Office. The Tennessean reports that Buck did not realize the speeding tickets given constituted the type of law enforcement contact he’s required to report.
During the traffic stop in Indiana, a second vehicle riding along with Buck fled. The anonymous driver and passengers inside the car evaded arrest. Federal prosecutors are questioning Young Buck as to the whereabouts and names of those people inside. According to court documents, the rhymer claims that he “was traveling with people allegedly for purposes of business, but did not know their identities.”
U.S. Magistrate Judge Joe Brown has given Buck until Wednesday (June 15) to provide information on the suspects in the fleeing vehicle to the U.S. Probation Office. If prosecutors are not satisfied with what they’ve received, the judge will have them request a hearing.
In March, Buck, born David Darnell Brown, was indicted on charges of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. The Nashville native could face up to 10 years behind bars for the offense. During his hearing, he pleaded not guilty.
Young Buck is currently free on a $100,000 bond that allows him to travel for performances.
