WGN-TV reporter Marcella Raymond was fined $300 and sentenced to six months of court supervision for a 2005 clash with a suburban woman over a mini-mart parking space.

Raymond was sentenced Monday after she tearfully apologized for briefly grabbing the hand of a 60-year-old Glen Ellyn woman as they quarreled outside a local mini-mart.

"I am truly sorry that my actions led to this unfortunate incident," Raymond said during her sentencing, describing herself as "embarrassed" by the confrontation.

Raymond, 41, was convicted earlier this year of misdemeanor battery for the April 9, 2005, confrontation, which left the Glen Ellyn woman with a broken finger on her left hand.
