It's a big payout for a Playboy playmate.

According to the New York Daily News, former Playboy playmate Stephanie Adams was awarded $1.2 in damages by a jury Tuesday stemming from an excessive force lawsuit she filed against the New York Police Department in connection with her 2006 arrest.

Adams says police threw her to the ground at gunpoint following a confrontation with a cab driver, and that she suffered permanent neck and back injuries as a result of the rough treatment.
