A Fort Lauderdale, Fla., judge issued a warrant for the arrest of rapper Foxy Brown today (March 22) after she failed to appear in court on charges stemming from an alleged scuffle in a beauty supply store.

Judge Joel Lazurus issued the bench warrant for Brown after she did not show up in court in Fort Lauderdale, the Miami Herald reported.

Brown was charged in February with battery and resisting arrest without violence.

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 spat on the man as he called 911, staining his shirt.

She later struggled with a police officer who responded to the call, the report said. She was released on a $1,500 bond.

Brown's lawyer, New York state Sen. John Sampson, was participating in the legislative session and was unreachable, an aide in his office said.
