Campbell to face air-rage charges

Campbell to face air-rage charges

Supermodel Naomi Campbell will face criminal charges over an incident on a British Airways (BA) plane - which saw her accused of abusing a police officer.

The catwalk beauty was arrested at London's Heathrow airport last month following a dispute over her luggage, which was lost in the airport's recent Terminal 5 baggage handling fiasco.

Campbell allegedly spat at an officer as she was handcuffed and hauled off the BA jet, which was about to take off en route to Los Angeles.

The 38-year-old was released on bail on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and is now expected to face charges over the outburst.

Details of the charges are expected to be released next week.

It is not the fist time Campbell has found herself in trouble with the law over her fiery temper - last year she was sentenced to community service at New York's sanitation department after she was convicted of assaulting her maid with her Blackberry mobile phone.
