Naomi Campbell could face Heathrow charges

Lost bag, lost rag, jet lag?

WSA Battling Streatham clotheshorse Naomi Campbell could face charges over the incident at Heathrow early last month which saw her forcibly removed from an LA-bound British Airways flight and subsequently held "on suspicion of assaulting a police officer".

That's according to the Evening Standard, which says that "details of the charges are expected to be announced next week".

For those of you who are not up to speed on Campbell's latest escapade, it all kicked off when BA mislaid one of her bags at the newly-opened flagship Terminal 5 - quickly dubbed by passengers the "Baggage Bermuda Triangle". She apparently checked in two items, but "after boarding the flight was told by staff in the first class cabin that one her bags had been lost".

Campbell was then informed she'd have to leave the flight, which provoked a right royal rumpus during which she allegedly screamed "Why can't you do anything right? Get all my bags on this flight. I'm Naomi Campbell", while dismissing the BA crew as "bloody fools" and demanding "what are you looking at?" of fellow passengers.

Police called to the scene were allegedly called "assholes" by the enraged supermodel, while witnesses claim she "spat in the face of one officer and tried to kick and punch others". She was eventually "escorted" from the aircraft by armed plods, and subsequently bailed.

As an added twist to the tale, reports later suggested BA had banned Campbell from its flights. Not so, according to Saarf London's finest, who recently told a Brazilian newspaper she'd decided to boycott the airline. ®
