Naomi Campbell charged with second-degree assault

Naomi Campbell was charged with second-degree assault on Thursday after hitting her housekeeper with a phone during an argument, police said. The victim, identified as a 41-year-old woman, named Campbell as her attacker when she spoke to police, who said the alleged incident occurred in Campbell's Park Avenue apartment around 8 a.m. on Thursday reports People Magazine

A felony carries a minimum sentence of one year in the US.

Campbell's publicist said, Naomi had fired her assistant before the alleged fight.
