arrested, attacks neighbor with cell phone
Rapper Foxy Brown was arrested
on assault charges for hitting a neighbor with a cell phone.
female rapper Foxy Brown (real name Inga Marchand) has been
charged with assault after allegedly hitting her neighbor with a
Blackberry. Brown, 27, was arrested on Tuesday after she
allegedly hit Arlene Raymond, who lives near the Foxy Brown
residence in Brooklyn. The brawl was sparked after altercation
between the two women, because the rapper was blasting her car
stereo and disturbing the neighborhood. Raymond accuses Foxy
Brown of throwing her Blackberry at her a few days later,
cutting her lip and busting a tooth.
A $50,000 bail was arranged and Foxy
Brown was freed the same day.
The rapper is already on probation after
pleading guilty to assault in a 2004 dispute over $20 payment
for a manicure at a nail salon. Back then she refused a
misdemeanor plea. And earlier this year, Foxy Brown was accused
of violating her probation after she threw hair glue at a beauty
shop employee in Florida. A New York judge restored her
probation for good standing, but following the latest incident,
"We have filed a violation of probation with the court," said a
spokesman for the city Department of Probation on Tuesday.
In 2002, after she was arrested in
Kingston, Jamaica for an altercation with a policewoman at the
airport and missed her court date, Foxy Brown has also been
warned by the police in Jamaica that she will be arrested if she
ever enters the country.
