A judge has jailed Foxy Brown for violating her probation. Officials had sought to have Brown's probation revoked after the 27-year-old rapper was arrested on charges that she smacked her Brooklyn neighbor with her cell phone, said Jack Ryan, a spokesperson for the city Department of Probation.

They also complained that Brown had skipped her anger management classes and failed to get permission before traveling outside the city.

Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson ruled today (Aug. 22) that Brown would remain behind bars until a Sept. 5 hearing. A call to Brown's attorney wasn't immediately returned.

Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, was on probation for attacking two manicurists at a nail salon in 2004. She was arrested for allegedly assaulting Arlene Raymond, 25, on July 30, after the pair got into a fight over Brown blasting her car stereo.
