Naomi Campbell showed up at a London court this morning to plead guilty to four of six counts of assault that were brought against her after an incident broke out at London’s Heathrow airport back in April where Naomi flipped out on police officers after she believed a piece of her luggage had been stolen. Here are a few pics of Naomi as she sheepishly made her way into court to make her plea earlier today:
Naomi Campbell appeared in court Friday and pleaded guilty to assaulting two police officers in London’s Heathrow airport this April, PEOPLE has confirmed. The 38-year-old pleaded guilty to four of the six charges she was facing – two counts of assaulting a police constable; 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 behaviour fell far short of what is acceptable.” According to one source close to the trial, Campbell must remain in the Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court precinct to await sentencing. “The magistrate has asked for a report from the probation service prior to sentencing,” the source tells PEOPLE. “It is expected that she will be sentenced this afternoon.” Campbell could face a jail term of up to six months and a fine of $10,000 for each assault charge. Before the court convened, a rep for the model told press she “regretted” the incident.
I *love* how Naomi “regrets” these sorts of flare ups only after she gets caught and is about to be punished. If anything, she should sue the anger management facilities that she’s been working with over the past few years cuz their techniques aren’t really working for her. I find it very hard to believe that Naomi will be punished in any real way … I’m sure her lawyers worked out a deal where she’d get off from any serious punishment in exchange for standing in open court to plead guilty to the charges. She’ll prolly receive a slap on the wrists … again. But, I’d really love it if she got sentenced to serve another week of community service like the last time she was punished. I don’t know why, but the notion of Naomi Campbell scrubbing toilets really makes me smile.
UPDATE: This just in … Naomi has been sentenced to 200 hours of community service! It looks like she may be scrubbin’ toilets again very soon :)
