Supermodel Naomi Campbell Charged With Assault



Naomi Campbell has been charged with assault after a fracas following the sacking of her housekeeper

Naomi Campbell is in trouble again after another. The supermodel was arrested Thursday March 30th, 2006 at her Park Avenue home and charged with assault soon following an incident during which she beat her housekeeper, Ana Scolavino, over the head with a mobile phone which struck her on the back of the head and opened a cut that needed four staples.

It was all began when Campbell couldn't find a pair of jeans she wanted to wear on "Oprah" and so accused Ana of stealing it. Campbell's lawyer, David Breitbart, explained that Scolavino had been working for Campbell for two to three months and was being fired because several items were missing from the house. "When this happened this morning, all hell broke loose," he said.

As a result Campbell was taken into custody at 11:30 a.m. (ET), and booked on second-degree assault because of which she could face up to seven years in prison. Fortunately, she was later on released and ordered to return to court on June 27. Being asked by judge to surrender her passport, she at last was allowed to keep her passport after her lawyer argued that her famous face would prevent her from fleeing.

Strongly denied the accusation, Campbell insisted Ana as "sadly mistaken if she thinks she can extract money from me by concocting lies by recycling old stories". Also her publicist added "We believe this is a case of retaliation, because Naomi had fired her housekeeper earlier this morning".
