Without the help of 50 Cent, things haven’t been the same.
A couple of speeding tickets in Indiana and Georgia is all it took for Young Buck to find himself in the middle of a bad situation again.
Normally a couple of tickets wouldn’t be that big of a deal. But Buck was charged in March with being a felon in possession of a handgun and ammunition. He is free on $100,000 bond that allows him to travel for shows, but he must report any contact with law enforcement to the U.S. Probation Office. Because Buck didn’t do that it’s gotten him into trouble.
Buck maintains that he didn’t realize he had to report incidents like speeding tickets.
To make matters worse, police allege that during the traffic stop in Indiana, there was another car with Buck that fled the scene and got away. Now federal prosecutors want him to identify the occupants of that vehicle. Buck claims that he “was traveling with people for purposes of business, but did not know their identities.”
It’s safe to say that prosecutors aren’t satisfied with the answers they have been given so far by Buck. U.S. Magistrate Judge Joe Brown has given the rapper until Wednesday (June 15) to provide information to the U.S. Probation Office. If they are not satisfied with what he tells them, prosecutors can request a hearing.
