British supermodel Naomi Campbell surrendered to Toronto police Friday, charged with assaulting Georgina Galanis, her former personal assistant, in September. Campbell, 28, accompanied by her lawyer, arrived at a downtown police station where she was fingerprinted and photographed. Police said Galanis, 39, complained that Campbell assaulted her in a Toronto hotel Sept. 9. Following an investigation, detectives decided to charge Campbell with assault causing bodily harm. (Besides suing Campbell for $2 million in damages, Galanis also claims the supermodel owes her $1,461.54 in back pay.) Campbell was released on her own recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 11. If found guilty, Campbell could face a prison term.
