Naomi Campbell Escapes Jail
(showbizspy.com) - Supermodel Naomi Campbell has escaped jail after pleading guilty to assaulting two police officers at London's Heathrow Airport in April (08).
The catwalk beauty was sentenced to 200 hours community service and fined $4,500 (GBP2,250) at a hearing at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court, in west London on Friday (20Jun08).
Campbell was arrested onboard a Los Angeles-bound plane following a dispute over her luggage, which was lost in the airport's recent Terminal 5 baggage handling fiasco.
The 38-year-old admitted three counts of assault, one count of disorderly conduct and two counts of threatening behaviour towards cabin crew.
Speaking outside the court her spokesman Alan Edwards insisted the sentence was fair - as Campbell deeply regrets her conduct.
He says, "She was concerned about her actions towards the police officers. She has issued a genuine and unequivocal apology to the officers involved.
"She has been sentenced objectively and impartially. Her future is now up to her."
