Brown goes down

Foxy Brown's assault with a deadly Blackberry has fast-tracked her to jail. A New York judge has ruled that "hitting your neighbour with a portable phone" constitutes a breach of the terms of Brown's probation:

"She has an air of entitlement about her," city Department of Probation lawyer Matilde Leo said at a hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court. "Probation is a privilege, not a right....She has finally abused that privilege to the point of no return."

The judge agreed, and - despite the defence's pleas of "but she's three months pregnant" - sent her to jail. She'll languish in the slammer until the next hearing on September 7th.
