A representative for Naomi Campbell steps out with further explanation on the supermodel's arrest at London's Heathrow Airport's newly-opened Terminal 5 on Thursday, April 3.
A representative for Naomi Campbell was quick to share explanation on the supermodel's arrest at London's Heathrow Airport on Thursday afternoon, April 3 for investigation of assaulting a police officer. Defending his client Jeff Raymond told Access Hollywood, "Naomi was flying to Los Angeles for a memorial service on Thursday, April 3. She arrived at Heathrow Terminal 5 in plenty of time, checked her two bags in and was told they would make the flight."
Raymond went on explaining, "Once on the plane, she was told one bag could not be found and was missing. [British Airways] decided to resolve this by insisting she leave the flight and then called the police to forcibly eject her from the flight." Campbell then, according to Raymond's explanation, "was taken to the Heathrow Police Station and released on police bail."
Campbell was arrested at Heathrow Airport's newly-opened Terminal 5 Thursday for allegedly spitting at a police officer. She was claimed to be heading for a memorial service in Los Angeles yet unfortunately discovered one of her carry-on bags was missing.
The Sun said cops first tried to calm her down, assured her that they would forward along the luggage to her final destination should it turn up. Campbell, in fact, got temperamental and flew into a rage and "began harassing airline staff who called cops as the flight was called and Naomi walked onto the plane. She was still yelling at boarding card staff as she took her seat."
She, not long after that, spat at one officer and even laid into the officer with her fists, forced the cops to quickly haul her off the plane. Bags belonging to the model and her entourage were taken from the flight.
And still according to Raymond, "So far as we are aware [British Airways] have still failed to offer any explanation as to why her bag went missing at Terminal 5."
