Young Buck found himself in more legal last week. According to TMZ, the Tennessee rapper was booked into Warren County Regional Thursday for violating his federal probation. The arrest occurred less than two weeks after he was put behind bars for reportedly threatening to burn down his ex-girlfriend’s apartment. Police took Buck into custody on July 22, and he was released on a $5,000 bond only after a few hours. But, like many assumed, Buck’s arrest resulted in a probation violation, and he’s now facing more time locked up.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, the government intends to revoke Buck’s probation and put him behind bars “on the basis that he may flee and that he poses a danger to others.”
Buck’s probation stems from a gun charge in 2012, about two years after the IRS found illegal firearms and ammunition in the G-Unit rapper’s Nashville mansion.
Buck was released from federal jail on Monday, and he’s schedule to appear in court at a later date for a hearing on the probation revocation.
Following his July 22 arrest, Buck reassured fans he was turning his attention back to his music. The rapper released a protest track called “Riot” in response to the recent deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.
