Naomi Campbell NCampbell050208_011.jpg LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Naomi Campbell plead guilty today to assaulting two police officers during an altercation at London's Heathrow Airport on April 3. The model could face up to six months in jail as well as costly fines if the harshest sentence is applied at Uxbridge Magistrates Court, according to The Associated Press.

Prosecutor Melanie Parrish went into great detail today about the incident which resulted in Campbell's arrest and six assault charges. Parrish told the court that Campbell, 38, was sitting in first class on a British Airways flight from London's Heathrow Airport to Los Angeles when she was informed that one of her bags had not been loaded onto the plane. Airline personnel (including the captain) attempted to explain the situation to the model, but she verbally harassed them and then proceeded to ignore them while making a phone call demanding another flight. After her outburst, she attacked the police who handcuffed her and removed her from the plane, according to Parrish.

Campbell was charged with six different offenses, including attacking police officers, using abusive language to the cabin crew and disorderly conduct. Campbell's spokesperson, Alan Edwards, said that she regretted the incident and looked forward to telling her side of the story. Campbell has not yet been sentenced.
