Naomi Campbell was back in court today, as she unsuccessfully tried to cut a deal on charges she threw a cell phone at her maid over a pair of missing jeans.

Campbell was accused of hitting Ana Scolavino in the back of the head with a cell phone in the model's Manhattan apartment. She was treated for a head injury after the accident.

Assistant District Attorney Shanda Strain said during the hearing, “We're still in the process of working out a possible disposition."

The 36-year-old supermodel stood silently during the short hearing. She is due back in court on Jan. 16.

Campbell's lawyer, David Breitbar, said he was considering a plea offer from the Manhattan district attorney's office, but declined to provide details.

The model, who didn't speak with reporters after the hearing, wore a formfitting dark gray dress and a black cloth jacket with high-heeled black suede pumps.

Breitbart told reporters Campbell hoped to reach an agreement that would only require community service.

If convicted on the assault charge, the British beauty could face up to seven years in prison and deportation.

On Tuesday Campbell was sued by another former maid who says the model viciously assaulted her.
