PROSPECT HEIGHTS, N.Y. (WPIX)—Brooklyn born rapper Foxy Brown pleaded not guilty Thursday to violating an order of protection that was apparently filed by one of her neighbors.
Brown, who showed up to Brooklyn Criminal Court donning a teal dress and leopard-patterned scarf, reportedly remained silent and emotionless during her arraignment.
Brown was released on $5,000 bail.
The 30-year-old was apparently rehearsing in her Prospect Heights home before getting into a brawl with her neighbor, Arlene Raymond. Brown is accused of beating Raymond with a BlackBerry in 2007.
A complaint filed by Raymond, claims Brown flipped out on her for no reason. The feisty raper apparently blurted out "B----, what are you looking at? What the f--- are you looking at?" before lifting her skirt.
Raymond, who filed a restraining order against Brown following her first beatdown, called police to alert them of the incident.
When cops showed up, Brown was arrested and charged with one court of criminal contempt, for violating the order of protection.
Brown's lawyer, Bruce Baron, defended the rapper outside of court.
"This case will exemplify that orders of protection should be used as shields and not as swords," he said.
If convicted, Brown faces a seven-year prison term.
