Foxy “Suffering Greatly” in Jail, Files Suit Against Correction Department
After spending nearly a week at New York’s Riker’s Island correctional facility, Foxy Brown has had enough. According to the New York Post, she filed a lawsuit against the New York Department of Corrections on Monday (August 27) in an attempt to secure her release from the jail. The suit claimed that Judge Melissa Jackson’s decision to lock her up on a probation violation until a September 7 hearing was “arbitrary” and “unlawful,” and revealed that the rapper is “suffering greatly” through her incarceration. But Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Laura Ward disagreed and tossed the suit, effectively dooming Foxy to another ten days in the big house. Judge Jackson threw Fox Boogie in jail on August 22 after she was arrested in her home borough of Brooklyn for allegedly assaulting her neighbor with a Blackberry cell phone. The very next day, the trouble prone MC was pulled over in Mahwah, New Jersey and issued seven traffic summonses. The arresting officers said that she initially gave them an incorrect birth date and spelling of her name.
