LONDON (AFP) — British supermodel Naomi Campbell has been banned from flying with British Airways following her arrest at a London airport last week on suspicion of assaulting a police officer, media reports said Tuesday.
The Daily Mirror said British Airways has banned Campbell from flying with them again after the incident.
The 37-year-old Londoner, who was bailed Friday after her arrest, was reported by fellow passengers to have become aggressive and abusive to staff and to have then assaulted a police officer aboard the LA-bound aircraft, which had not taken off.
A BA spokesman Tuesday declined to comment on the case, telling the Press Association: "We do not comment in detail about matters relating to individual passengers.
"All incidents of abusive or disruptive behaviour towards fellow passengers or staff are taken extremely seriously and will not be tolerated.
"We deal with cases on an individual basis and take appropriate action where necessary."
Last year Campbell, known for her fiery temper, was found guilty of reckless assault for hitting her maid with a mobile phone. She was ordered to spend a week mopping floors at a New York City warehouse, attend a two-day anger management course and pay more than 350 dollars to cover her victim's medical expenses.
