Bench Warrant Issued For Rapper Foxy Brown

Just two weeks after being freed from Rikers Island after an eight month stint in prison, Brooklyn rapper Foxy Brown may have run afoul of the law again.

A judge issued a bench warrant for rapper Foxy Brown, after she failed to appear in Brooklyn Criminal Court earlier today (May 5).

Brown, who was released from prison on April 18, was due in court today, to face assault and weapons charges , stemming from an altercation with her Brooklyn neighbor.

The two women clashed over the volume of Brown’s car stereo, as well as the racket her entourage was allegedly making in the Prospect Height’s neighborhood.

The NYPD accused Brown of striking her 25-year-old neighbor in the face with her Blackberry, causing the woman to have a swollen lip, loose teeth and swelling in her right eye.

Brown is also due in court on May 8, where she is expected to reach a plea with the State Attorney in Florida.

Brown was charged with two misdemeanor assault charges, stemming from an altercation at the Queen Beauty Supply Store in February of 2007, in Pembroke Pines, Florida.

Brown’s lawyer in that case severed his ties with the rapper last week citing irreconcilable differences, after the rapper’s New York lawyers worked out a deal that will allow her to serve six months probation.
