Rapper Young Buck's court date in connection with a scuffle at the VIBE AWARDS has been pushed back by a month.

The G-Unit member's day in court was set for yesterday (18MAR05), but it has now been continued to 18 April (05), when a preliminary hearing will also be scheduled.

Young Buck, real name David Brown, has pleaded not guilty to attacking JIMMY JAMES JOHNSON with a knife at the Santa Monica, California, awards ceremony in November (04).

Brown allegedly attacked Johnson when the latter punched rap icon Dr Dre after he refused to sign an autograph.

The rapper, who is free on bail, faces an eight-year jail sentence if he's convicted.
