Naomi Campbell Jail Bird?

I can't believe that I'm writing about Naomi Campbell twice in one week! According to news reports, she pled guilty to the equivalent of roadrage for her behavior at Heathrow Airport, when they had to kick her off the flight.

According to PEOPLE's website, she was sentenced to 200 hours community service and fined $4,500 today after her guilty plea in court, where she admitted to assaulting two police officers in London's Heathrow airport in April. The supermodel, 38, admitted guilt to 4 of the 6 charges she was facing, which included 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." Last year, Naomi was ordered to attend anger management classes and completed five days of community service after she pled guilty to assault for throwing a cell phone at her housekeeper. Does anyone remember the pictures of her showing up for community service wearing 5 inch platform shoes and some designer outfit?

Okay, clearly her anger management classes didn't help her the last time. What is it going to take for her to work out that she can't throw things or assault people just to get her way? I really wonder if she takes this stuff seriously. She assaulted two police officers, that would automatically get her jail time in the States.

I'm telling you, if they made her spend a week in a New York jail cell or at Riker's Island, she would never assault anyone ever again!

Hey Elizabeth,

I couldn't agree with you more. My dad used to work on Riker's a million years ago. Scariest place in the world. Maybe Naomi could use her own "suite." LOL Believe me, she'd never want to go back.

All the best,

Thanks Dee! I'll update my links.

Seriously how many free passes can this woman get for assaulting people?
