Foxy Brown pleads not guilty in assault case

Rapper appears in court today

Foxy Brown pleaded not guilty today (October 16) to assault charges stemming from an incident in which the rapper allegedly threw her mobile phone at a neighbour.

Brown, 28, appeared today in Brooklyn State Supreme Court to enter the plea, reports the Associated Press.

The rapper was arrested in Brooklyn in August after she allegedly used her mobile phone to strike her neighbour, Arlene Raymond, for complaining about the volume of her car stereo.

Brown has been in Rikers Island prison in New York for violating probation by skipping anger management classes and leaving the city without permission in an unrelated case.
