The Crown Prosecution Service said Campbell has been charged with three counts of assaulting a constable, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in prison and a fine of up to 5,000 pounds ($9,872). Campbell also faces one count of disorderly conduct likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress, which is punishable by a fine of up to 2,500 pounds ($4,936), and two counts of using threatening, abusive words or behavior towards cabin crew, which comes with a maximum penalty of 1,000 pounds ($1,974).

The alleged assault happened on April 3 on a British Airways flight which was scheduled to leave Heathrow Airport for Los Angeles. Her attorney, Simon Nicholls said Campbell, 38, was "bitterly disappointed" to learn that she will be prosecuted and he told the press: "She respects that decision and she hopes this matter is dealt with expeditiously."

Campbell will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court next on June 20, according to the Crown Prosecution Service.
