Foxy Brown cuffed on Blackberry assault rap

Alleged device-chucking rapstress detained

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Rapstress Foxy Brown has confirmed the BlackBerry as bitchslap assault weapon of choice by earning herself a cuffing for allegedly (hand)setting about a woman with the popular mobile device, AP reports.

The battling 27-year-old chanteuse was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly assaulting 25-year-old Brooklyn neighbour Arlene Raymond. On 30 July, the two tussled over Brown "blasting her car stereo". A few days after the spat, as the pair passed in the street, "Brown hurled her BlackBerry at her [Raymond], cutting her lip and knocking a tooth loose".

Brown, née Inga Marchand, was subsequently released on $50,000 bail. Her manager Chaz Williams declared the charges false.

The incident may prove costly for Ms Brown. She's currently on probation after copping a guilty assault plea for wading in "over payment for a manicure at a nail salon" in 2004. Earlier this year, she was accused of violating her manicure probation for throwing hair glue at a beauty shop employee in Florida.

She could have been jailed for the adhesive outrage, but a Manhattan judge decided that "since she'd kept appointments with her probation officer, passed drug tests and attended required anger management classes", he didn't have to hand down a Paris Hilton.

Recovering Blackberry launch platform Naomi Campell was unavailable for comment today. ®
