A Manhattan socialite was busted at an exclusive Hamptons hotel for allegedly assaulting her mother.
Shawn Modell — a Realtor related to the sporting-goods family — pummeled her mother at Southampton Inn, Southampton police said.
Authorities charged Modell with misdemeanor assault for “allegedly striking her mother in the head, causing a laceration” in the Sunday incident.
Modell was released after posting $100 bail. Her mother was treated and released from Southampton Hospital.
The two were staying in a $469-a-night room when “the daughter came down and said she was leaving,” a source said. “She and her mother were arguing, and the daughter was all scratched up. She said, ‘I’m done! I’m fed up! I can’t take it anymore.’ Upstairs, there was blood in the bathroom and on the bed.”
A woman at a listed number for Modell said, “That’s not accurate,’’ when asked about the incident, then hung up.
