Foxy Brown Rejects Plea

Foxy Brown rejected a second plea deal Friday (August 5) that would have prevented her from going to jail on assault charges.

According to prosecutors, the deal, offered by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, called for Brown to serve 10 days of community service for attempted assault and harassment of two nail technicians last August.

The Brooklyn rapper is accused of kicking and punching the two employees after an argument over payment for a manicure.

Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, turned down a similar plea bargain in May.

“She didn’t commit any misdemeanor,” her lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, told the Associated Press. “That’s the bottom line.”

Negotiations with the district attorney are expected to continue, and a resolution before the trial is not out of the question, according to Tacopina.

Brown has maintained her innocence and is scheduled to return to court on September 22.
