Rapper Foxy Brown was threatened with jail on Tuesday (21Jun11) after she turned up two hours late for a scheduled court date.
The hip-hop star, real name Inga Marchand, has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanour charge of violating a court order for allegedly flashing her bottom and hurling an obscenity at a New York neighbour, who has an order of protection against the star.
Brown, 31, who faces a year in jail over the alleged incident last July (10), was due in court in Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday morning to begin her trial, but she showed up more than two hours late and was immediately reprimanded by the judge, who told her, "Don't put me in a position when I'm going to remand you to make sure you're here at 9.30am. Court starts at 9.30am, not when you roll in."
The rapper claimed her attorney had given her the wrong start time and told the court, "This is bulls**t. I'm always here on time," according to the New York Daily News.
The trial is now due to begin on 12 July (11).
