Jimmy James Johnson, who attacked Dr. Dre at the Vibe Awards last year, has been ruled on trial of an assault charge
Jimmy James Johnson, a 26-year-old man who allegedly punched Dr. Dre at the Vibe Awards last year after asking for his autograph during a taping of the show on November 15, has been ruled on trial of an assault charge. Judge James Dabney on Friday found sufficient evidence to try Jimmy James Johnson.
Dr. Dre was about to receive a lifetime achievement award when he was punched by Johnson, who was soon then stabbed by rapper Young Buck after he struck Dre. The attack had, in continuation, set off a chair-throwing brawl that spread through the crowd. Yet, Buck has pleaded not guilty and is free on $500,000 bail awaiting trial.
