Dr. Court Appearance: N.W.A. rapper Andre Young, who goes by the stage name of Dr. Dre, pleaded guilty Friday in New Orleans to a misdemeanor charge of aggravated battery against a police officer. He also was convicted on two additional misdemeanor counts of battery stemming from a brawl in the lobby of the New Orleans Sheraton Hotel on May 22. Young--who faces up to 18 months in jail when sentenced for the crimes in January--is scheduled to appear in court next month in Van Nuys and also in Los Angeles for two unrelated assault and battery cases.
