Naomi Campbell has been charged with six offenses related to her purportedly violent outburst on a British Airways flight last month. She could receive a sentence of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to almost $10,000. WWD reports:

Campbell was charged with three counts of assaulting a policeman, one count of disorderly conduct and two counts of using threatening behavior and abusive words to cabin crew…

"Miss Campbell is bitterly disappointed that the prosecutors have advised her she is to be prosecuted for various offenses," stated Campbell's lawyer, Simon Nicholls. "She respects the decision and hopes this matter will be dealt with expeditiously."

Well, at least she just had a really good time in Cannes and a really glamorous 38th-birthday party.
