Naomi Campbell bailed over alleged assault
Ten hours in the cells for battling supermodel
WSA Naomi Campbell was yesterday released on bail after spending 10 hours in Belgravia police station following an alleged assault on her drugs counsellor, The Independent reports.
Campbell was arrested on Wednesday at her London home "on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm" after her counsellor reported the alleged attack to police. Sources reported the victim had "walked into a police station looking 'quite shaken up' and with red marks on both cheeks".
Campbell apparently spent much of her time in the cells "sleeping off jet lag" having flown into the UK to renew her US visa. Following her release, she returned to the police station to be bailed until December.
A spokesman for the battling supermodel said: "We believe there has been a misunderstanding. Once police have investigated we are sure this will be resolved satisfactorily."
Campbell is due in court in New York next month on a charge of assaulting her housekeeper with a mobile phone. ®
