NEW YORK (Reuters) – Supermodel Naomi Campbell will not face charges related to assault accusations by her driver, New York police said on Wednesday.
The 39-year-old model was accused of striking her driver from behind and causing his head to hit the steering wheel of the car on Tuesday afternoon. By the time police arrived at the scene in Midtown Manhattan, Campbell had left on foot.
New York police said in a statement on Wednesday that the driver “filed a harassment complaint, but elected not to pursue criminal charges” and that there would be no arrest.
Campbell’s spokesman Jeff Raymond said after the incident that there should no be a rush to judgment on the supermodel and that “there is more to the story than meets the eye.”
