Rapper Foxy Brown Jailed In Broward County

 Pembroke Pines police have arrested South Florida rapper Foxy Brown on charges of battery and obstruction of justice.

According to Pembroke Pines police, Brown, whose real name is Inga D. Marchand, was arrested after a disturbance at the Queen Beauty Supply Store located at 12106 Pembroke Road.

Brown is being held on $1,500 dollars bond at the Sheriff�s North Jail in Pompano Beach.

Brown has a long list of legal run-ins in the past.

In January of 1997, she received a 30-day suspended sentence and 80 hours of community service after she turned herself in on an arrest warrant for missing a court appearance for spitting on two hotel workers in Raleigh, North Carolina when they told her they didn�t have an iron available.

In March 2000, Brown crashed her Range Rover in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Her injuries were minor but police arrested her for driving while her license had been suspended for not paying two parking tickets.

In July 2003, Brown was arrested in Kingston, Jamaica for an altercation with a policewoman at Norman Manley International Airport. When she missed a court appearance two days later, Jamaican authorities announced that she would be arrested if she returned to the island.

In August 2004, Brown allegedly attacked two manicurists in Chelsea, Manhattan during a dispute over a $20 bill that she refused to pay. She was not charged for the incident until March 7, 2005. She has denied the charges and even rejected misdemeanor plea deals on May 6 and August 9, 2005.

On October 25, 2006, Brown was sentenced to three years probation and anger management counseling; orders of protection were authorized for the manicurists.

On December 23, 2005, Brown was handcuffed in a Manhattan, New York courtroom after an exchange with a judge. Brown was in court to finalize a plea deal stemming from the August 2004 incident. Judge Melissa Jackson thought Brown was chewing gum and asked her to get rid of it. Brown responded by opening her mouth and sticking her tongue out. Judge Jackson ordered Brown cuffed to a bench for fifteen minutes, but when a female court officer attempted to handcuff her they got into a heated exchange over a bracelet the rapper was wearing. Judge Jackson alleged that Brown also struck the officer. When Brown refused to apologize, she was threatened with thirty days in jail. She gave in and apologized to the court. The confusion was that she stuck out her tongue to show that she had no gum, not to disrespect the judge.
