US clamps down on violent supermodels

Air rage Dane expelled

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Danish supermodel May Andersen was unceremoniously expelled from the US yesterday after allegedly "slapping and wrestling" a flight attendant on a plane from the Netherlands to Miami last week.

The unlucky Andersen also fell foul of US immigration authorities, AP reports, with officials deciding she was "inadmissable" under the visa waiver scheme.

The battling clotheshorse spent two nights in chokey on charges of "battery, resisting arrest, and disorderly intoxication" - thereby outdoing even Naomi Campbell who recently managed just a feeble second degree assault rap after allegedly battering her housekeeper with a jewel-encrusted PDA.

Sadly, we have no evidence of Andersen attempting to attack the pilot with a Victoria's Secret-branded BlackBerry, and therefore no real excuse for running this story at all.

We would, however, like to suggest that Ms Andersen has got off extremely lightly in this matter. Indeed, were she not a famous-ish model she might now be showing off the latest Guantanamo Bay Spring 2006 fashion range for the benefit of incarcerated terror suspects.

As for Campell, she's due back in a New York court in June facing a possible one year's jail. Since she is really famous, let's see if the judge decides to order officers to drag her kicking and screaming on the first flight back to London, or fines her 50 bucks and asks for her autograph. ®
