The man who allegedly punched Dr Dre in the face at the Vibe Awards, sparking a melee at the 15 November (04) ceremony, has pleaded not guilty to assault.

JIMMY JAMES JOHNSON, whom authorities believe attacked the rap veteran after he refused to sign an autograph, remains in custody after the Monday (10JAN05) arraignment, on a parole violation connected to a previous charge of armed robbery.

He is due back in court 26 January (05), when a date for a preliminary hearing will be set.

Meanwhile, G-Unit rapper Young Buck, who has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly stabbing Johnson, will be arraigned on Friday (14JAN05).

Young Buck, real name DAVID DARNELL BROWN, faces up to eight years in prison if convicted.

Lieutenant FRANK FABREGA of the SANTA MONICA POLICE DEPARTMENT says investigators are still attempting to identify two other men seen brandishing knives in videotape of the incident.
