Brown spent about eight months in 2007 and 2008 in New York City jails on a probation violation after pleading guilty to assault in a fracas at a nail salon. Because of threats against her, the high-profile inmate was held largely in protective custody in a cell of her own, with access to a day room, a former NYC Corrections official said.

Rapper Foxy Brown has been indicted on charges of violating an order of protection stemming from a 2007 confrontation with her neighbor in New York City.

Prosecutors say Brown violated the order in July by screaming at neighbor Arlene Raymond before bending over, baring her buttocks at Raymond and showing her underwear while shouting an obscenity.

The 31-year-old Brown was issued the order of protection after pleading guilty in 2008 to menacing Raymond with her cell phone.

The two had been in a dispute over Brown blasting her car stereo outside their Brooklyn building.

The indictment announced Friday charges Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, with criminal contempt in the second degree. She could face up to one year in jail.

A lawyer for Brown did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
