JERUSALEM (AP) - A court has convicted the father of Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli for malicious damage over an altercation with paparazzi photographers.

The Kfar Saba Magistrates Court on Thursday convicted Rafi Refaeli, 57, for the incident that took place in 2007.

According to court documents, Rafi Refaeli received a call from his supermodel daughter complaining that she was being followed by photographers while driving to his house in Tel Aviv.

The documents say he broke one of the photographers’ cameras and damaged one of their motorcycles when they reached his home.

A date has not yet been set for sentencing.
