Foxy Finally Gets on the Bus for Court

Now here's a news flash -- Foxy Brown actually made it to court this morning, and on time!

Brown, real name Inga Marchand, was in court today -- sporting no hair extensions and a relatively demure plaid pant outfit -- to face arraignment on assault charges -- four days after her originally scheduled appearance, which she missed. Her lawyer said today that Foxy was never scheduled for transport from her prison cell at Rikers Island and that's why she missed the first hearing, but TMZ was told that she didn't want to leave Rikers without her hair and makeup done and without eating lunch. And about that lawyer -- it wouldn't be a Foxy hearing if she didn't do a little attorney swapping. John Sampson, who had served as her counsel this summer, was brought back yesterday, we're told, by Foxy's mother, and Alan Stutman, who had represented the rapperista in her last two court hearings, stepped down from the thankless task.

Foxy is due back in court in December to face more music stemming from an August 14 incident in which she allegedly smacked a Brooklyn woman with her phone.
