Naomi Campbell Arrested for Alleged Attack

British police arrested the supermodel on Wednesday for allegedly assaulting her drug counselor. The alleged victim made a formal complaint and Campbell was detained.
A police rep, who according to protocol cannot identify persons unless they are charged with a crime (it has yet to be decided whether Campbell will be charged), told PEOPLE: "Early in the afternoon on Oct. 25 a woman attended a central London police station alleging an assault on her at an address in Westminster."
He continued, "Officers attended the address, and a woman aged 36 years was arrested at approximately 1:20 p.m. for alleged assault. She was taken to a central London police station and was later bailed to return this morning.
"She returned and was further bailed to a future date pending further enquiries."
A spokesman for Campbell reportedly told a British newspaper, "We believe there has been a misunderstanding. Once police have investigated we are sure this will be resolved satisfactorily."
The incident is not the first time this year that Campbell, who has a history of anger management issues, has run afoul of the law.
In July she was arrested in London after causing a disturbance outside of the home of her ex, multi-millionaire Dubai playboy Badr Jafar.
And three employees have claimed she attacked them physically. Campbell was charged with second-degree assault in March for allegedly throwing a cell phone at housekeeper Ana Scolavino.
