Rapper Young Buck was arrested Friday on a warrant for failing to appear in court on a previous driving violation, police said.

Rapper Young Buck was arrested Friday on a warrant for failing to appear in court on a previous driving violation, police said.

The 25-year-old, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, was stopped after an officer said he observed Brown weaving in his black Cadillac Escalade near downtown Nashville.

Brown was cited last July on a misdemeanor violation for driving on a suspended license. He now has a valid license, but his record showed the outstanding warrant for last year's charge. He was released on $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 27.

The rapper was in his hometown on Thursday for an event by fashion designer Gino Green and to promote his new album "Buck the World," due this spring via 50 Cent's G-Unit label.

In December 2005, Brown pleaded no contest to a felony in the stabbing of a man during a melee at the 2004 Vibe Awards show. He was sentenced to three years' probation.
