Foxy Brown spent a night in a Pembroke Pines, Fla., jail after police said she threw hair glue at a beauty shop employee and later swatted an officer, her second legal problem stemming from a salon scuffle.
The 27-year-old rapper (real name: Inga Marchand) was expected to leave jail this afternoon (Feb. 16) after a $1,500 bond was posted for her, the Broward County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office said. She was charged with battery and resisting an officer with violence. Brown’s lawyer, New York state Sen. John Sampson, didn’t return a phone call seeking comment.
It wasn’t immediately clear how her arrest would affect her sentence of three years’ probation and anger management classes for attacking a pair of manicurists in New York in 2004. The argument was about payment for a manicure at Bloomie Nails in Manhattan’s Chelsea area.
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.
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. No one was injured.
