Young Buck is heading to jail after violating the terms of his probation from a previous arrest. David Rivera, U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee, revealed the news. The former G-Unit member hinted at his sentence via Instagram after appearing in court in Nashville on Wednesday, August 10. Billboard reports that Banks was on probation after being arrested pending domestic assault and vandalism charges, and that he also violated the conditions of a three-year supervised release dating back to November 2013.


Posting on Instagram about his jail time, Young Buck wrote: "Things ain't go as plan today. Lost my freedom again. Lord knows how much I'm gonna miss my Mother,children,my girl,my Real friends and family."

The Nashville Scene carried news of the sentencing yesterday and highlighted a number of incidents involving Young Buck and the police so far this year. He allegedly threatened one of his children's mother's fiancées in March while in July he was arrested for allegedly kicking in a door at his ex-girlfriend's home and threatening to burn the house down. Authorities said that he then contacted her multiple times despite being released from jail on the provision that he refrained from doing so.

Update: August 11, 9:56 a.m. Young Buck's manager has confirmed to The FADER that his client has been sentenced to 7 months in jail and that he is planning to appeal.
