Naomi Campbell Sentenced in Air-Rage Assault
The supermodel gets 200 hours community service and a $4,500 fine
Naomi Campbell was sentenced to 200 hours community service and fined $4,500 on Friday after her guilty plea in court, where she admitted to assaulting two police officers in London’s Heathrow airport this April, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The supermodel, 38, admitted guilt to four of the six charges she was facing – two counts of assaulting a police officer; one of using threatening, abusive words or behavior to cabin crew; and one of using insulting, abusive, threatening behavior or disorderly conduct likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
The Crown Prosecution Service has decided not to pursue the other two charges.
“Ms. Campbell was aggressive, hostile and violent to people who were simply trying to do their jobs,” C.P.S. director Nazir Afzal said in a statement. “Her behavior fell far short of what is acceptable.”
The magistrate told Campbell that her behavior aboard the British Airways plane was “reckless.”
Before court convened, a rep for the model told press she “regretted” the incident.
