Naomi Campbell Reportedly Arrested for Assault, Again

Naomi Campbell may have added another arrest to her name. The supermodel was reportedly detained Thursday for assaulting a police officer at London's Heathrow Airport.

Sky News claims the supermodel spat at a police officer before being removed from the plane in handcuffs and taken to Heathrow police station. British newspaper The Sun said Campbell was "ranting and raving" about a missing carry-on bag as police escorted her off a Los Angeles-bound British Airways flight.

A Heathrow Airport representative told that "police removed a passenger from a BA flight" and police confirmed "a 37-year-old was arrested on suspicions of assaulting a police officer," but neither would not comment on the individual's identity.

Airport sources identified the passenger as Campbell, who is 37. Calls and e-mails to Campbell's representative in Los Angeles were not immediately returned.


The British supermodel is as famous for her fiery temper as for her runway strut. Campbell was ordered to attend anger-management classes after throwing a mobile phone at her housekeeper during a fight over a pair of jeans. She spent five days mopping floors in New York last year as part of a community-service sentence.

In 2000, Campbell pleaded guilty in Toronto to an assault charge for beating her then-assistant with a telephone in Canada in 1998. Under an agreement with prosecutors, Campbell expressed remorse and was released without punishment or a criminal record.
