Pandemonium at NYC 'Top Model' audition

Chaos, coppers and cuffings

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

WSA Fears that the exciting world of international modelling had lost its edge following Naomi Campbell's apparent retirement from bitchslapping pugilism were evidently groundless - a fact confirmed by a New York audition for America's Next Top Model which ended in panic and chaos with six people injured and three cuffed.

According to the BBC, thousands were queuing outside a Manhattan hotel in the hope of securing a place on Tyra Banks's reality show when all hell broke loose. The Beeb reports that "clothes and shoes were abandoned in the street as women tried to escape the melee", although police "could not say what had sparked the panic".

Some sources suggest "a man charged into the crowd attempting to steal handbags", which added to the pandemonium. Two women and one man were arrested on charges of "inciting to riot and disorderly conduct", while only a couple of the injured required hospital treatment.

Show producer CW network said it was "working with authorities to investigate what had happened". ®
