"Foxy Brown Thrown In The Hole At Rikers"

from sohh.com

Brooklyn rapper Foxy Brown, already locked down for assault, was thrown in the hole for 76 days.

As previously reported by SOHH, the rapper born Inga Marchand is serving a year-long bid at Rikers Island for hitting her neighbor with a cell phone.

Her latest drama, according to the New York Post, finds her in the hole after three violations at the prison this month. The first occurred on Oct. 3. Foxy and another inmate were on their way to the dining hall when the two broke out in a shoving match. Officials said corrections officers were able to jump in before anyone was seriously injured. While the other inmate only received 11 days in solitude for the scuffle, Foxy kept up the bad behavior.

She got her second and third strikes the very next day, verbally abusing a correction officer and refusing to take a random drug test.

She was then sentenced to 76 days in "punitive segregation," reportedly, and will spend 23 hours alone in her cell. She is allowed to see visitors, meet with an attorney, exercise, or browse the library in an area apart from other inmates for only one hour each day.

The rapper could be looking at more time by her lonesome when officials go over her latest case, in which Foxy twice refused to board a Rikers Island bus headed for her Oct. 12 court date. She subsequently skipped the date, but made the rescheduled proceeding.
