Troubled rapper Foxy Brown pleaded not guilty to attacking a beauty store employee in a Florida court on Thursday.

Brown's appearance in court came after a judge issued a warrant for her arrest when she failed to attend her scheduled hearing, which was supposed to have taken place on Wednesday.

The hip-hop star, real name Inga Marchand, is accused of throwing hair glue and spitting on Sam Hayssam at the beauty shop after he asked her to leave at closing time in early February.

Marchand reportedly struggled with the police officer who arrived at the shop and resisted arrest.

In court Marchand pleaded not guilty to both misdemeanour charges of battery and resisting arrest without violence and has been released on R11000 bail.

The latest court appearance follows the rapper's 2004 arrest for assaulting two manicurists in New York City.

She was sentenced to three years probation in October and was ordered to undergo regular drug testing and attend anger management classes. - Wenn
