Naomi Campbell arrested, spits at airport cop



Tbdnaomicampbell040408 Naomi Campbell's anger management classes apparently haven't been working too well, as the supermodel was hauled away "ranting and screaming" after spitting at a police officer at London's Heathrow Airport today.

The Sun says Campbell was set off by a lost bag in the notorious new Terminal Five, which any globetrotter checking bags can tell you is the airport equivalent of the eighth level of Super Mario Bros. British Airways told her in the first class lounge that one of her three bags hadn't made it onto her flight, sending her into a rage.

She shouted at airline staff even after the flight was called and she walked onto the plane, prompting calls to security. Three officers came onto the plane and tried to calm her down, the tabloid says, but she responded by spitting at one and swinging at the rest, shouting "get off me, leave me alone," earning her a ticket off the flight.

"We can confirm that a passenger was removed by police from a BA flight this afternoon," a Heathrow spokeswoman told the Sun. The flight left more than 90 minutes late, and security likey scrambled to hide their cell phones from that crazy Campbell.
