Rapper Young Buck has been released on bail after being arrested over a stabbing at the Vibe hip-hop awards.

Young Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, was arrested on suspicion of stabbing a man who allegedly punched rap star Dr Dre in the face.

Mr Brown, 23, was released on $500,000 (270,000) bail after surrendering to police in Los Angeles on Friday.

Jimmy James Johnson was stabbed as Dr Dre was waiting to receive a lifetime achievement award on 15 November.

Mr Brown, a member of 50 Cent's group G-Unit, is accused of stabbing Mr Johnson in a hangar at Santa Monica airport, where the awards were held.

Dr Dre was punched as he waited to go on stage to receive the honour, police said.

Mr Johnson allegedly approached Dr Dre, who was sitting at a table in front of the stage, and appeared to ask for an autograph before punching him.

During the ensuing scuffle - which involved many of the 1,000-strong crowd - Mr Johnson was stabbed as he was being dragged away by security staff. He suffered a collapsed lung.

Mr Brown is signed to Dr Dre's record label as part of G-Unit. His debut solo album, Straight Outta Cashville, went in at number three on the US Billboard chart in August.
