Gun Charges Dropped Against Banks, Young Buck

Gun Charges Dropped Against Banks, Young Buck

Felony gun possession charges against G-Unit rappers Lloyd Banks and Young Buck, arrested last year following a concert at New York's Madison Square Garden, were dropped today (Nov. 8) at the request of prosecutors.

"This whole experience reminds me of the title of my new album — 'Rotten Apple,'" Banks, whose real name is Chris Lloyde, said in a statement.

Police said Lloyde and Young Buck, whose real name is David Brown, were riding in a van with several other men in August 2005 when it ran a red light in midtown Manhattan. Officers said they discovered a loaded handgun and another weapon in the van.

Lloyde and Brown had just performed at MSG as part of the Anger Management 3 tour with Eminem and 50 Cent.

Prosecutors asked a judge to dismiss the charges after an investigation determined the neither Lloyde, 24, nor Brown, 25, had possessed the guns, said a District Attorney's office spokesperson, who added that one suspect has pleaded guilty in the case and another remains under indictment.
