Official: Supermodel Hit Flight Attendant

Sports Illustrated swimsuit and Victoria's Secret supermodel May Andersen was refused entry into the United States on Monday and will be returned to the Netherlands after being arrested for allegedly hitting a flight attendant on a plane from Amsterdam to Miami last Thursday, officials said.

Andersen, 23, will return to Amsterdam on the next available flight from Miami, said U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Zachary Mann, the Associated Press reports. The specific reasons for the denial were not provided because of federal privacy protections, he said.

Anderson was charged with simple battery, resisting arrest without violence and disorderly intoxication after allegedly becoming unruly and violent on the flight. She was held in Florida's Miami-Dade County jail and then moved to federal immigration custody.

Mann said Andersen was seeking to enter the U.S. under the visa waiver program, which permits some visitors to enter without visas. CBP on Monday determined that Andersen was "inadmissible" under that program.
