NY police seek Naomi Campbell for assault questions

NEW YORK - Naomi Campbell was wanted for questioned by New York police on Tuesday after her driver accused the British supermodel of assaulting him.

New York police said the 39-year-old model is accused of striking her driver from behind and causing his head to hit the steering wheel of the car around 3 p.m. (2000 GMT).

By the time police arrived at the scene in Midtown Manhattan, Campbell had left on foot. "The driver said a small bruise and swelling under his right eye was caused by her," the New York police said in a statement. "We want to talk to her."

Campbell would voluntarily cooperate with police, said her spokesman Jeff Raymond. "There shouldn't be a rush to judgment," he said in a statement. "There is more to the story than meets the eye."

In 2008 Campbell was sentenced by a London court to 200 hours of community service after pleading guilty to assaulting two police officers during an expletive-filled incident after she had discovered an airline had lost one of her bags.

Campbell also spent five days mopping floors and cleaning toilets as part of a community service sentence in New York in 2007 after throwing a mobile phone at her housekeeper during an argument over a pair of jeans. She was also ordered to attend anger management classes.

In a previous incident with a telephone in 1998, Campbell assaulted an assistant, Georgina Galanis. The model agreed in 2000 to plead guilty in a Toronto court to the assault in exchange for expressing remorse, paying Galanis an undisclosed amount of money and attending anger management classes.
