Rapper Foxy Brown charged with striking neighbor with her cell phone

Foxy Brown, the 27-year-old rapper, was charged with striking a neighbor with her cell phone in a dispute over loud music, police said.

Foxy Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, is already in trouble for attacking two manicurists at a nail salon, was on probation after pleading guilty to assault in a 2004 dispute over paying for a manicure. The latest arrest could lead to her probation being revoked.

"We have filed a violation of probation with the court," said Jack Ryan, a spokesman for the city Department of Probation.

Brown was arrested Tuesday for assaulting a neighbor, Arlene Raymond, who she had been feuding with since mid-July, according to police and residents. Raymond, 25, lives near the rapper in the Prospect Heights section of Brooklyn. Police said the two got into a fight over the rapper blasting her car stereo.

Raymond said that a few days later, they passed each other on the street, and Brown hurled her BlackBerry at her, cutting her lip and knocking a tooth loose.

Brown was released on a $50,000 (EUR 37,103) after being arraigned Tuesday on charges of felony assault, misdemeanor assault and criminal possession of a weapon. Her manager, Chaz Williams, said the charges were false.

Brown's lawyer, state Sen. John Sampson, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Earlier this year, Brown was accused of violating probation in an incident at a hair salon in Florida. Police said she threw hair glue at a beauty shop employee.

She was threatened with jail in that incident but was restored to probation in good standing in June by a Manhattan judge, who said she had kept appointments with her probation officer, passed drug tests and attended required anger management classes.
