News: Foxy Brown Pleads Not Guilty To Battery
Foxy Brown actually made a court date on Wednesday to plead not guilty to two misdemeanor charges in connection with her incident at a beauty supply store in Pembroke Pines, Fla.
Judge Joel Lazarus had issued an arrest warrant for the Ill Na Na when she failed to appear for a hearing last week. The warrant was withdrawn on Wednesday after Brown's lawyers explained that the arraignment notice informing her of the court date was mailed to an old address.
Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, was charged in February with battery and resisting arrest without violence. Her trial has been scheduled to take place in June.
"I am going to stand up and fight and take care of this," said the 27-year-old outside the courthouse, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
According to the police report, Brown was in the bathroom of Queen Beauty Supply applying beauty products when an employee informed her that the store was closing and she needed to leave. She refused and threw hair glue at the employee, the report said. Brown then spat on the man as he called 911.
When police arrived, she struggled with the arresting officer, the report said. She was released on a $1,500 bond.
On March 1, 2007, Foxy Brown pleaded guilty Thursday to a probation violation for leaving New York without permission.
On March 22, 2007, Broward County Judge Joel Lazurus issued an arrest warrant for the arrest of Foxy Brown for her failure to appear in court for the February 15, 2007 incident.
Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson said Brown's sentence will continue the six months' probation she is already serving. But Jackson warned that if there are any other probation infractions, "I'm reserving the right to resentence you to jail for one year."
