Foxy Brown Charged in Blackberry Assault
The rapper allegedly hit her neighbor in the face during an argument
Rapper Foxy Brown turned herself in Tuesday to face charges that she hit her Brooklyn neighbor with her Blackberry cell phone last month, ABC News is reporting.
The 27-year-old was charged with felony assault, menacing, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon, according to reports
Brown was arraigned and released on $5,000 bail. Her next court date is Sept. 26.
The New York Police Department says the trouble-prone rapper, who is on probation, was accused of hitting her 25-year-old neighbor during an argument on July 30. The victim filed a complaint with the police after reportedly receiving treatment for loose teeth, a swollen lip and swelling of her right eye.
Brown is currently on probation after pleading guilty last year to misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a fight with nail salon workers.
The Il Na Na rapper is also facing a battery charge for allegedly throwing hair glue at a beauty shop employee in Florida.
While that case is pending, the Manhattan court that handled the original arrest imposed drug tests and anger management classes on Brown.
