Foxy Brown Officially Charged with Battery and Resisting Arrest
Prosecutors in Broward County, FL officially filed charges of battery and resisting arrest without violence against Foxy Brown on Wednesday (March 7) according to a report by website TMZ.com. The charges stem from a February 15 incident during which Queen Beauty Supply owner Hayssam Ghoneim claims the rapper squirted hair glue at him, attempted to push him and knocked over display shelves in the store. A police officer who responded to a call placed by Ghoneim later stated that he had to employ a “takedown maneuver” on the diminutive rapper when he took her into custody. During a press conference on February 26, she denied the allegations and suggested that the Broward County Police were guilty of racial profiling and police brutality. On March 1, Foxy pleaded guilty to violating her probation by traveling to Florida without prior permission, and was ordered by the judge to continue serving her six month probation sentence from a prior assault charge.
