Over the past few years, YB has had multiple run-ins with law enforcement and spent time in jail.
This isn’t the first time that Young Buck has been behind bars. In 2016, the rapper was arrested for violating probation in regards to a restraining order after trying to contact an ex who had a restraining order against him. Then in 2017, he was indicted for on misdemeanor charges of domestic assault and vandalism after allegedly calling his then ex more than 100 times, threatening to torch her apartment, and kicking down her door-resulting in him being imprisoned for 7 months.
