Naomi Campbell's driver will not press charges after 'attack'

Wednesday March 3, 2010

New York Police have said that supermodel Naomi Campbell's chauffeur will not press criminal charges after he accused her of attacking him.

Naomi is alleged to have punched the driver from behind, causing his head to hit the steering wheel, as they drove through the streets of New York.

Police said they did not expect to make any arrests after the incident.

Jeff Raymond, a spokesman for Naomi, says she will co-operate voluntarily with the police, adding: "There is more to the story than meets the eye".

It's not the first time the 39-year-old has been involved in an alleged assault incident.

In 2000, Naomi pleaded guilty to assaulting her assistant who said that the supermodel hit her on the head with her mobile phone.

She served a five-day community service order in New York in 2007 after admitting reckless assault, having thrown a mobile phone at her housekeeper.

In 2008, she was sentenced to 200 hours' community service after she pleaded guilty to assaulting two police officers on a plane at Heathrow airport.
