Foxy Brown pleaded guilty Monday August 28th to assaulting two nail salon stylists over a $20 manicure.
Rapper Foxy Brown was on Monday August 28th pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a fight with salon workers over a manicure. The star was pleaded guilty to assaulting the two women in August 2004 by hitting and kicking them in a dispute over payment for a manicure Brown said she never received.
Yet, to everyone's surprise Brown returned to the Manhattan Criminal Court room a short time after her case had been heard to tell Judge Melissa Jackson that she wanted to change her plea. "I'm innocent in this case," so the star said.
The judge had initially told Brown she would be sentenced at a formal hearing on October 23 to three years probation, which would require her to report monthly to police and undergo drug testing, and attend an anger management course.
And thus the judge said Brown would have to make a written motion to the court to withdraw her plea and that a decision on that request would be made on October 23.
