LATEST: Rapper Young Buck turned himself in to police in Santa Monica, California, yesterday afternoon (19NOV04), to face charges of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

Police believe the G-Unit rapper, real name DAVID DARNELL BROWN, stabbed 26-year-old JIMMY JAMES JOHNSON after Johnson attacked Dr Dre at Monday's (015NOV04) Vibe Awards.

Buck was booked and then released on $500,000 (GBP27,700) bail, according to the SANTA MONICA POLICE DEPARTMENT. He'll be arraigned in Los Angeles Superior Court on 20 December (04).

In footage of the awards ceremony melee, a man in a grey hooded sweatshirt and a black hat, believed to be Buck, is seen lunging at Johnson with a knife in his hand. Detectives are still trying to identify two other men seen with knives.
