Naomi Campbell Wanted for Questioning After Allegedly Hitting Driver
The supermodel "will cooperate" with a police investigation, her rep says
Naomi Campbell may be in hot water with police yet again after an alleged confrontation with her driver in New York City on Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.
Campbell, 39, is wanted for questioning by the NYPD after allegedly slapping and punching her driver on the east side around 3 p.m., according to reports.
The supermodel reportedly assaulted the driver before getting out of the car and leaving the scene. The driver had pulled over to speak to a traffic agent.
A spokesperson for the British model says, “There shouldn’t be a rush to judgment. Naomi will cooperate voluntarily, and there is more to the story than meets the eye.”
This is not the first time Campbell has been accused of violence.
In 2006, she was arrested for hitting her housekeeper with a crystal-studded BlackBerry during a fight. A judge ordered her to complete several hours of community service in 2007 as a result. In 2008, she was sentenced to 200 hours of community service and fined $4500 for assaulting two police officers in London’s Heathrow airport.
