Rapper ‘Young Buck’ arrested in Tennessee, police say

Rapper David Darnell “Young Buck” Brown was arrested in a Tennessee county Dec. 20 on a fugitive warrant in Georgia, police said.

The rapper/actor is being held in the Cheatham County Jail without bond, WTVF reported. His court date is set for May, the television station reported.

Brown, 38, a Nashville native, was arrested after an officer pulled over the driver of a black Ford F-150 who appeared to be talking on his cellphone, WZTV reported. According to an arrest report, the officer said he smelled marijuana when he approached the vehicle. Brown then handed the officer a rolled joint and said it was his, according to the arrest report.

A computer check revealed Brown had an extradition warrant out of Newton County, Georgia, for child abandonment, WZTV reported.

Brown was previously arrested in 2016, accused of kicking in the front door of his ex-girlfriend's Nashville apartment and threatening to burn it down, WKRN reported. Brown was later sentenced to seven months in prison, the television station reported.

In 2017, Brown was indicted on domestic assault and vandalism charges, WTVF reported.
