On Wednesday a man pleaded guilty to attacking Hip Hop prodigy Dr Dre at last years Vibe Awards.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner sentenced Jimmy James Johnson, 27, to one year in county jail, which also includes a three year probation for the charge.
Allegedly, Johnson approached Dre (Andre Young) for an autograph before attacking Dre, in what is believed to have been an unprovoked attack. Other G-Unit members were involved until the incident cooled down.
It is belived that G-Unit member Young Buck stabbed James Johnson in retaliation to Johnson?s assault of Dre. Johnson suffered a collapsed lung in the aftermath of the attack and was immediately taken to hospital.
Young Buck awaits trial for the alleged stabbing, but has a pretrial motion on September 26th at Airport Branch Courthouse in Santa Monica.
A judge decree also prevents Johnson from going in close proximity to Dr. Dre for three years from now.
