LONDON: Naomi Campbell was released on bail on Friday after being arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer at Heathrow Airport.

Campbell, 37, left the airport police station just after midnight on Thursday. London’s Metropolitan Police said she had been bailed pending further inquiries and told to report to a police station in late May.

The London-born supermodel was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer after the police were called to a disturbance at the new Terminal 5. Witnesses said Campbell was aboard a British Airways aircraft due to take off for Los Angeles when she became involved in a dispute over her luggage.

More than 28,000 bags have been separated from their owners at Terminal 5 since it opened amid chaotic scenes last week.

Campbell has had a history of assaulting assistants and employees. In 2000, she pleaded guilty in Toronto to an assault charge for beating an assistant while making a film in Canada in 1998. — AP
