Naomi Campbell Arrested for Alleged Attack

Naomi Campbell is once again in trouble with the law.

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.
