Foxy Shows Up in Court, Pleads Guilty to Assault

foxy3.jpgAfter missing a morning session and having a warrant issued for her arrest, Foxy Brown eventually showed up at a Manhattan courtroom and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge. The Associated Press reports that Foxy, whose real name is Inga Marchand, arrived in Judge Melissa Jackson’s courtroom yesterday afternoon (August 28) and explained that she had been delayed by a hurricane in Jamaica, where she had traveled for a concert.

In an odd twist, the rapper pleaded guilty to the assault charges, only to later retract her plea and proclaim her innocence. She stands accused of assaulting two nail salon employees during a dispute over payment for a manicure back in 2004. Judge Jackson had previously sentenced Foxy to three years of probation, including monthly visits to the police and drug screening, as well as enrollment in an anger management course. When she attempted to withdraw her plea, Jackson told her she would need to enter a written motion. A decision on that motion will be announced on October 23.
