Rapper Foxy Brown is facing more charges stemming from a traffic stop last Wednesday (August 15), when she allegedly gave police false information after she was pulled over for talking on her mobile phone.
According to police, Brown, born Inga Marchand, was chatting on the phone and driving her 2007 Land Rover in Mahwah, New Jersey just one day after surrendering to authorities for allegedly assaulting her neighbor in July.
Police stopped the platinum-selling rapper for talking on the phone and failing to check at a stop sign.
An officer ran the tags on the Land Rover and found out that the registration for the vehicle had been suspended.
When an officer asked the 27-year-old rapper for her name, she reportedly gave a variation of her name and a false date of birth.
After a search of the bogus name turned up no results, Brown gave in and revealed her birth name.
Police ran her real information and found that in addition to Brown’s registration being suspended, she was also driving with a suspended license.
Brown, who has a home in Mahwah, was arrested and taken to police headquarters, where she was cited with seven traffic tickets and released.
She is due in Mahwah Municipal Court on Sept. 4.
Brown was charged with assault last Tuesday (August 14) stemming from a July incident, in which she allegedly smacked her 25-year-old neighbor in the face with her Blackberry during an altercation.
The rapper is currently on probation for assaulting two manicurists in a Manhattan nail salon in 2004.
In March, Brown also pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor charges for allegedly spitting on the owner of a beauty store and resisting arrest during a dispute in Pembroke Pines, Florida in February.
The New York Probation Department has filed a violation with the courts and Brown may face up to a year in prison.
