Supermodel Naomi Campbell is earning a rap sheet as long as her legendary legs. The 38-year-old catwalk diva has been charged with assaulting two police officers during an alleged luggage incident at Heathrow Airport last month, her lawyer and prosecutors said Thursday.

After reporting to Heathrow police Thursday, Campbell was charged on six counts – three for assaulting a constable, two for using threatening, abusive words or behavior toward the cabin crew and one for disorderly conduct – according to the Crown Prosecution Service.

It was only last year when Campbell, who is scheduled to appear at a west London magistrates’ court on June 20, was ordered to attend anger management classes and complete five days of community service after she allegedly threw a cell phone at her housekeeper.
