(Newser) – Supermodel Naomi Campbell was arrested today at London's Heathrow Airport for allegedly spitting at a police officer, the Sun reports. The "ranting and screaming" Briton was deemed unfit to fly and removed by police after she threw a fit when airline employees couldn't find a carry-on bag Campbell, 37, appeared to have misplaced herself.

Campbell's latest outburst—she's been busted twice for abusing assistants—escalated when she refused to leave Terminal 5's first-class lounge, shouting, "get off me, leave me alone" at guards before attacking them. The Sun also reported the Los Angeles-bound British Airways flight was delayed an hour and a half while Campbell's luggage was taken off the jet.
