Naomi Campbell charged in latest rage incident

Tbdnaomicampbell053008 Rageaholic model Naomi Campbell has been charged with six counts of being a jerk to police offiers and British Airways staff in her April 3 incident at Heathrow, the AP reports. She faces three counts of assaulting a constable, two counts of using threatening, abusive words or behavior to the cabin crew and one count of disorderly conduct.

The assault charges carry a maximum sentence of six months in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000. The other charges are punishable by a fine. She was ordered to appear in court on June 20.

After arriving at a police station on Thursday in a chaffeur-driven Mercedes, Campbell was "bitterly disappointed" that she was charged, her lawyer, Simon Nicholls said.

"Prosecutors in this case have decided she needs to be prosecuted in the magistrates court. She respects that decision and she hopes this matter is dealt with expeditiously," he said. At least, much more expeditiously than her baggage was that day.
