Young Buck Spends Weekend In Jail After Violating Probation
Rapper Young Buck reportedly spent this past weekend in jail after violating his probation last week following an angry outburst involving his ex-girlfriend.
According to TMZ, the Nashville native was arrested July 21 for threatening to burn down his ex’s apartment through text, before proceeding to kick down the door of the apartment and leaving the residence completely undisturbed.
The moment of anger could have serious consequences for the artist, as he is currently on probation for a 2012 gun charge, in which federal agents found illegal firearms in his home during a raid.
Although the rapper was released from custody on $5,000 bond a couple hours after the July 21 incident, he was brought back into custody July 28 at the Warren County Jail in Kentucky for a violation of his probation.
According to documents filed by the U.S. attorney, the government revoked his probation” on the basis that he may flee and that he poses a danger to others.”
This is not the first time Young Buck has played with fire, as in March prosecutors wanted to jail the rapper after he threatened a man who was attempting to collect back child support owed to one of his children.
Buck also narrowly escaped jail time in 2015 for trying to pass someone else’s urine for a drug test.
