Rapper Foxy Brown turned herself in Tuesday to face charges that she hit her Brooklyn neighbor with her Blackberry cell phone last month, ABC News is reporting.

The 27-year-old was charged with felony assault, menacing, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon, according to reports

Brown was arraigned and released on $5,000 bail. Her next court date is Sept. 26.

The New York Police Department says the trouble-prone rapper, who is on probation, was accused of hitting her 25-year-old neighbor during an argument on July 30. The victim filed a complaint with the police after reportedly receiving treatment for loose teeth, a swollen lip and swelling of her right eye.

Brown is currently on probation after pleading guilty last year to misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a fight with nail salon workers.

The Il Na Na rapper is also facing a battery charge for allegedly throwing hair glue at a beauty shop employee in Florida.

While that case is pending, the Manhattan court that handled the original arrest imposed drug tests and anger management classes on Brown.
