RALEIGH — Baseball player Roberto Alomar was notseverely punished for spitting on an umpire, but if you spit in someone'sface in North Carolina, you'll pay a stiffer price -- no matter how famousyou are.

Rap star Foxy Brown learned that lesson Monday in a Raleigh courtroom.A judge found the 17-year-old guilty of two minor assault charges stemmingfrom a spitting incident at a Raleigh Holiday Inn earlier this year.

As part of her sentence, Brown must complete 80 hours of communityservice, pay a $500 fine, and publically appologize to the hotel clerk inquestion.
