Naomi Campbell bitchslaps NY limo driver

Battling Streatham clotheshorse in alleged punch-and-run

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

WSA Battling Streatham clotheshorse Naomi Campbell came out of pugilistic retirement yesterday to allegedly punch a New York limo driver, AP reports.

The unnamed 27-year-old victim was booked to whisk Ms Campbell from a Manhattan hotel to Astoria Studios in Queens. However, he later told police the supermodel launched an assault from the back seat of the black Cadillac Escalade, punching him in the back of the head.

The blow "caused his head to strike the steering wheel" and he suffered "bruising under his right eye".

Campbell promptly legged it, and cops launched a dragnet to snare the assailant. Her spokesman Jeff Raymond assured: "There shouldn't be a rush to judgment. Naomi will co-operate voluntarily and there is more to the story than meets the eye."

In the end, though, Campbell did not have to answer for the alleged attack, since the driver decided not to pursue the matter. She's simply the subject of a "harassment report", which doesn't carry any penalty.

Campbell's previous form includes assaulting two police officers at Heathrow airport, attacking her personal assistant with a BlackBerry and chucking a mobile phone at her maid. ®
