Foxy Brown Pleads Not Guilty To Battery
LATEST: Troubled rapper FOXY BROWN pleaded not guilty to attacking a beauty store employee in a Florida court yesterday (28MAR07).
The CANDY hitmaker's appearance in court comes a week after a Broward County judge issued a warrant for her arrest after she failed to attend her scheduled 22 March (07) hearing.
The hip-hop star, real name INGA MARCHAND, is accused of throwing hair glue and spitting on SAM HAYSSAM, owner of Queens Beauty Shop in Pembroke Pines, after he asked her to leave so he could close the store in February (07).
Marchand reportedly struggled with the police officer who arrived at the store and resisted arrest.
In court yesterday, Marchand pleaded guilty to both misdemeanour charges of battery and resisting arrest without violence and has been released on $1,500 (GBP769) bond.
The latest court appearance follows the rapper's 2004 arrest for assaulting two manicurists in New York City. She was sentenced to three years probation last October (06) and ordered to undergo regular drug testing and attend anger management classes.
