Brown pleads not guilty to throwing cell phone


NEW YORK -- Foxy Brown has pleaded not guilty to charges that she threw a cell phone at a neighbor who complained about the volume of her car radio.

The 28-year-old rapper entered the plea to the assault charges in Brooklyn state Supreme Court on Tuesday after arriving from Rikers Island prison wearing casual street clothing.

Brown is in jail for violating probation -- skipping her anger management classes and traveling out of the city without permission -- in a separate case in Manhattan.

She was arrested in the New York City borough of Brooklyn in August and accused of striking Arlene Raymond, 25, after the pair got into a fight July 30 over Brown blasting her car stereo near her home.
