Model behavior takes a turn for the worse: Campbell gets a suspended six-month jail sentence.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell was found guilty of assault on Friday and was given a six-month suspended prison sentence, reports E! News.

The sentence is for a 2009 incident in which Campbell allegedly attacked a paparazzi photographer. According to reports, the model hit the photographer with her purse after she noticed him capturing photos of her and affluent ex-boyfriend Vladimir Dorinin.

The photographer claims that he was hospitalized following Campbell's assault, saying that he suffered scratches to his eye.

After being ordered to stand trial in Italy, Campbell's attorney made an agreement with the photographer, resulting in him dropping the charges. However, a juridicial source said that the case prosecutor ordered for the trial to go ahead in the interest of the public, due to the charges' severity.

While this is is not Campbell's first time in trouble with the law, let's just hope she'll stick to throwing down... on the runway.
