Naomi Campbell Charged With Assaulting Cops
Supermodel could face jail time
The supermodel has been charged with three counts of assaulting a police officer, one count of disorderly conduct and two counts of using threatening, abusive words or behavior towards the cabin crew at London's Heathrow airport, reports the BBC News.
"Miss Campbell is bitterly disappointed that the prosecutors have advised her she is to be prosecuted for various offences," her lawyer said in a statement after she answered bail at a London police station Thursday (May 29). "She respects that decision and she hopes this matter is dealt with expeditiously."
Campbell, 38, was arrested on April 3 aboard a British Airways flight regarding a dispute over missing carry-on luggage.
The assault charges carry a maximum sentence of six months in prison and a fine. The other charges are also punishable with fines. Campbell is due back in court on June 20.
The supermodel is famous for losing her temper and throwing her cell phone at her housekeeper. She pleaded guilty to the telephonic assault and was ordered to attend anger management classes and perform five days of community service.
She recently spoofed herself on the season finale of "Ugly Betty" in which she pulled out her cell phone on the ballfield and everyone in her vicinity ducked. She also was a guest on Bravo's "Make Me a Supermodel."
