Rapper and Nashville native David "Young Buck" Brown was arrested in Cheatham County on a fugitive of justice charge for child abandonment out of Georgia.
Brown was taken into custody on Dec. 20 after an officer pulled over a driver of a black Ford F-150 who appeared to be talking on his cell phone while driving. The officer identified the driver and Brown, who was a passenger.
The officer said the vehicle smelled like marijuana when he approached it. When asked by the officer if there was marijuana in the truck, Brown reportedly handed him a rolled joint and said it was his.
A computer check through dispatch showed Brown had a full extradition warrant out of Newton County, Georgia for child abandonment. Brown was placed in custody before police conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle.
During the search, officers found a clear baggy containing approximately three grams of marijuana on the passenger side of the vehicle. Brown told an officer that he tried to hand him the baggy, but it fell between the seat.
Police said Brown was not charged with the marijuana because he was possibly being extradited to Georgia and "very cooperative." A property receipt was written out and the marijuana was placed in a drop box.
Brown was taken to the Cheatham County Jail where he was held without bond.
