NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Foxy Brown, though no longer making music, is still an entertainer.

The mooning charges were dropped against the hip hop star, whose real name is Inga Marchand, after the neighbor who accused her neighbor refused to testify.

According to the Huffington Post,  Assistant District Attorney Robert Isdith tried to meet with Foxy’s neighbor, Irene Raymond, before the trial, but the woman ultimately decided not to pursue the charges.

Isdith later said, “While the district attorney’s office has no doubt the defendant committed this crime, we have no other choice but to dismiss this case.”

New York tax payer money at work here folks.

Irene Raymond has a restraining from a previous physical altercation with the rapper and had claimed that that order had been violated in July 2010 when Foxy screamed at Raymond before “baring her buttocks and showing her underwear while shouting an obscenity.”

Wait, did she bare her buttocks or did she show her underwear?  These are two entirely different levels of mooning here, Irene.

Had the case gone to trial, Foxy would have claimed she was not guilty, and stated that Raymond has a “borderline obsession” with her and wants to be her.  Her lawyer also stated that Foxy was going commando at the time so the neighbor’s claim that she showed off her underwear is a total lie.

Oh yeah, the ole “My client doesn’t wear underwear” defense, it’s a classic.

Now that those mooning charges are off the table, Foxy is about to enter another lawsuit. Her attorney, Salvatore Strazzullo, will be filing a civil suit in Brooklyn alleging malicious prosecution.
