Naomi Campbell charged over airport incident

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has been charged with five offences after being arrested for clashing with a police officer at Heathrow last month.

The highly-strung 37-year-old was held at the beleaguered Terminal 5 in April after a row broke out with airline staff who informed her some of her baggage had been lost.

Consequently, the police were called and Campbell was handcuffed and led off the plane, before being released on bail.

She answered bail at Heathrow police station yesterday (May 29th) and was charged with three counts of assaulting a police officer, an offence of disorderly conduct likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress and one count of threatening or abusive behaviour towards a cabin crew member.

A spokesman for British Airways said last month: "All incidents of abusive or disruptive behaviour towards fellow passengers or staff are taken extremely seriously and will not be tolerated."

Ms Campbell was sentenced to community service in New York last year after being convicted of assault.
