Full Moon Fever? Charges Dropped Against Foxy Brown for Mooning Neighbor

Is this justice in a post-Casey Anthony world? You bet. Charges were dropped today against raunchy rapper Foxy Brown for allegedly mooning her neighbor, Arlene Raymond. The singer, whose real name is Inga Marchand, beamed in her slinky silver dress and Chanel patchwork bag when Justice John Walsh of the State Supreme Court in Brooklyn dismissed the misdemeanor charges.

Prosecutors had contended that Brown violated a protection order in July 2010 after she shouted an obscenity at Raymond, then bent over, and bared her buttocks. Brown had pleaded not guilty to the charges and said she hadn’t been wearing any underwear that day—but her accuser had claimed that she had removed them in order to moon her. The case was dropped after Raymond refused to testify. The Assistant DA said, "She wanted this matter behind her. She wanted to drop the charges." Better than dropping trou.

The problems between the two neighbors began when Brown blared her car radio outside the Prospect Heights building where they both reside, and the two got into an argument over it. A judge ordered Brown to stay away from Raymond in 2008 when Brown plead guilty to menacing her with a cell phone. A Brooklyn grand jury indicted her one misdemeanor count and declined to indict on three misdemeanors and two felony counts respectively.

Even after the charges were dropped, Brown wouldn’t let it go, venting to reporters outside the Brooklyn courtroom that “it’s a scary thing when someone want to be you and have your life.”

Really? I mean when was the last time you remembered Brown for anything other than getting into fights and being behind bars?
