Foxy Brown’s bench warrant ‘a misunderstanding’

Warrant is recalled after court error

Foxy Brown’s bench warrant yesterday (May 5) was due to a misunderstanding, and has been recalled, it is being reported.

The rapper was supposedly due in court in Brooklyn to face charges after allegedly assaulting her neighbour with a BlackBerry device last year.

As previously reported, Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, was not present for a scheduled hearing in Brooklyn Supreme Court yesterday morning, resulting in Judge John Walsh issuing a bench warrant for the MIA rapper.

However, apparently the whole debacle was down to a clerical error in which the dates changed. Brown’s lawyer Laura Dilimetin had previously had the case deferred to May 8, but the court kept the original date on their calendar.

Having realised the mistake, the warrant was recalled and Brown’s scheduled appearance is now May 8, says TMZ.

The rapper was released from Riker’s Island prison on April 18 after serving eight months of a one-year sentence for violation probation for assault.
