NEW YORK - A judge has sent rapper Foxy Brown to jail for a year.

She ruled Brown had violated the terms of her probation by failing to attend anger management classes and failing to stay out of trouble.

Judge Melissa Jackson told Brown, 28, pictured, whose real name is Inga Marchand, that she had failed to take probation seriously. Brown would be treated "just like any other defendant", despite her celebrity status.

Brown asked for another chance.

In October, the hip-hop artist was sentenced to three years probation and anger management classes for assaulting two nail salon stylists over a $20 manicure. - Reuters
