Police say the fight was touched off after a man named Jimmy James Johnson approached Dr. Dre under the pretext of asking for an autograph and then subsequently punched him. Johnson was stabbed in the melee and hospitalized with a collapsed lung. Charges were also filed Monday against Johnson, 26, who is in police custody on a parole violation.
Dre produced parts of Young Buck's first album Straight Outta Cashville, which debuted at Number Three in August. Young Buck remains free on $500,000 bail.
