Rapper Young Buck has pleaded not guilty to assault charges after allegedly stabbing a guest at the Vibe Awards in November (04).

Young Buck, real name David Brown, was arrested and charged with attacking JIMMY JAMES JOHNSON with a knife at the Santa Monica, California, awards ceremony.

Brown allegedly attacked Johnson after the latter punched rap icon Dr Dre after he refused to sign an autograph.

Appearing in court in Los Angeles yesterday (14JAN05), Brown didn't speak during his arraignment hearing but acknowledged his lawyer when he issued the not guilty plea.

The rapper, who is free on bail, faces an eight-year jail sentence if he's convicted. He is due back in court on 18 February (05).
