Naomi Campbell was arrested yesterday (25.10.06) for allegedly scratching her drugs councillor's face.
The supermodel was arrested at her London home after her therapist arrived at a police station with her face covered in scratches, claiming the 36-year-old had assaulted her.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "The marks were so red you could tell the attack had only recently happened."
Police said: "A woman aged 36 was arrested after an alleged assault at an address in Westminster at approximately 1.20pm.
"She was taken to a central London police station. Last night she was bailed and will attend a station on a date in October."
A spokesman for former drug-addict Naomi said: "We believe there has been a misunderstanding. Once police have investigated we are sure this will be resolved satisfactorily."
Naomi is renowned for her vicious temper. This claim is her ninth alleged assault in eight years.
In 1998 Naomi's assistant sued the model for threatening to throw her from a car. Naomi admitted the offence and underwent treatment for anger management.
Since then the supermodel has been accused of assaulting several staff, including one who claims she was held hostage and beaten.
In March this year it was alleged she attacked a maid with her mobile phone, leaving her covered in blood.
