Rapper Brown pleads guilty to probation violation


NEW YORK -- Foxy Brown pleaded guilty Thursday to a probation violation for leaving New York without permission.

Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson said Brown's sentence will continue the six months' probation she is already serving. But Jackson warned that if there are any other probation infractions, "I'm reserving the right to resentence you to jail for one year."

The 27-year-old rapper was arrested Feb. 15 in a fracas at a beauty supply store in Pembroke Pines, Fla. Police charged her with resisting an officer and simple battery.

She was sentenced to the probation and anger management classes after a fight at a Chelsea nail salon in 2004.

The rapper, whose real name is Inga Marchand, is known for her sexy outfits and racy lyrics. Her albums include "Ill Na Na" and "Chyna Doll."
