Foxy Brown charged with battery, resisting officer
Beauty shops and Foxy Brown just don't mix. Foxy spent a night in jail after police said she threw hair glue at a salon employee and then swung at a police officer in Pembroke Pines, Fla. It is her second high-profile problem at a salon. According to the Broward County Sheriff's Office, the 27-year-old MC, whose real name is Inga Marchand, was charged with battery and resisting an officer with violence but left jail Friday afternoon after a $1,500 bond was posted. Brown's lawyer, New York state Sen. John Sampson, didn't return a phone call from The Associated Press on Friday. There was no word on whether the latest incident would affect her sentence of three years' probation and anger management classes for attacking a pair of New York City manicurists in a 2004 pay dispute. According to the Florida arrest report, Brown was applying beauty products in the bathroom when a Queen Beauty Supply employee told her the business was closed and it was time to leave. She refused and threw hair glue at the employee, the report said. Brown then allgedly spat on the man as he called 911. A police officer found her in the shopping plaza and tried to get her to return to the store. When the officer placed a hand on her arm to escort her to the store, Brown swatted it away, then started swinging her arms and struggling with the officer, the report said. The officer had to "use a takedown maneuver to gain control" of Brown, according to the report.
