Naomi Campbell to mop NY floors

Battling supermodel learns her fate

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Naomi Campbell will "mop floors and sweep corridors" for five days as punishment for chucking a mobile phone at her maid, the Evening Standard reports.

In January, Campbell pleaded guilty in a New York court to a charge of reckless assault on Ana Scolavino, and was ordered to pay Scolavino's medical expenses of $363 and to do five days community service.

Campbell's lawyer expressed his client's wish to do her hard time indoors, thus sparing her the public humiliation suffered by Boy George - condemned to sweep the Big Apple's streets last year after falsely reporting a burglary at his New York apartment.

Although a Campbell spokesman said yesterday that "Naomi is ready to complete her sentence no matter where or what she is assigned", the Streatham clotheshorse appears to have got her wish, and "will be expected to work as a cleaner at a public building in New York". ®
