Young Buck Is Going Back To Jail

Young Buck

This just hasn’t been Young Buck’s year.

After serving time for firearms charges and breaking parole in 2013, then threatening to burn down his ex-girlfriend’s house earlier this year and failing to show up in court for it, Young Buck is heading back to jail for seven months, according to Nashville Scene. A statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office says that Buck – real name David Darnell Brown – has been sentenced to seven months in jail for all the above reasons and more, including faking a drug test with a false urine sample:

“In August, 2015, Brown pleaded guilty to willfully falsifying, concealing, and covering up by trick, scheme, and device, material facts regarding his possession and use of marijuana, by providing a false urine sample and by falsely telling a United States Probation Officer that he had not used a controlled substance. According to the statement of facts, Brown used a device, consisting of a plastic bag containing another person’s urine, to provide a urine sample as part of required drug testing. Brown was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Todd J. Campbell to serve 18 months’ probation, pay a $7,500 fine; perform 100 hours of community service; and submit to mandatory drug testing and treatment. 

Brown then continued to violate the conditions ordered by the Court, leading to his hearing today for violation of his terms of supervision in both those cases. Brown admitted that he had violated supervision in at least three ways.In March 2016, Brown received text messages from the fiancée of the mother of one of Brown’s children. In those text messages, the fiancée told Brown that he was in violation of a state court child support/visitation order, and that he could face state jail time for contempt. Brown then called the victim in this incident various derogatory and racial epithets and threatened him with physical harm.”

Buck confirmed this with an Instagram post saying goodbye to his “Mother,children,my girl,my Real friends and family” before shouting out his G-Unit brethren.
