(Newser) – Remember how Sean Penn roughed up a photographer and was sentenced to anger management? Well, sounds like he and his new lady friend are made for each other: Model Jessica White was arrested Saturday after allegedly yanking another woman’s hair and hitting her in the face in a fight over a taxi, the New York Post reports. And that’s not White’s first run-in with the law.

The model, described by insiders as a “firecracker,” got into trouble for allegedly taking a baseball bat to another girl’s car as a teenager. And one source says her behavior on set has been “troublesome,” including chain-smoking, snapping at the hairdressers and makeup artists, and changing agencies because she’s “difficult to work with.” After this latest incident, White was charged with misdemeanor assault and released.
