Supermodel Naomi Campbell has been arrested in New York City for allegedly assaulting her assistant.
The incident occurred at 8:00am on Thursday where the alleged victim, a 41-year-old woman, was struck in the head with an object, allegedly thrown by Campbell.
The woman had a laceration on the back of her head and was taken to nearby Lenox Hill Hospital for stitches.
Campbell was arrested at her home and taken to the Midtown North Precinct in New York, according to entertainment website TMZ.com.
A representative for Campbell released a statement saying, "We believe this is a case of retaliation, because Naomi had fired her housekeeper earlier this morning. We are confident the courts will see it the same way."
In 2000, the model pled guilty to hitting a former personal assistant Georgina Galanis with a telephone and was ordered to take anger management classes.
In 2001, another former personal assistant, Simone Craig, claimed Campbell threw a mobile phone at her. The British beauty denied that claim and no charges were filed.
