Fresh from from her appearance at Sephora’s Fashion Week Live in San Francisco just four days ago, Naomi Campbell reported into New York’s Department Of Sanitation Monday to begin serving her five days of community service for assaulting her maid with her jewel encrusted Nokia cell phone. Wearing black stilettos but holding dark work boots, the 36 year old supermodel may not be as glamorous as she was on the runway but still managed to attract hordes of photographers and reporters as she reported in at the Manhattan District 3 Garage at Pier 36 on the Hudson; the same facility where Boy George served his five days of community service last August for filing a false burglary report. But unlike the former Culture Club front man, Campbell will serve her duties inside the facility well away from the eyes of cameras and reporters.
The entrance to the facility will be guarded by sanitation police officers. Now I always thought being a meter maid was the bottom rung of police work but I have to say being a sanitation police officer has to be one notch below that. One has to wonder what else they are guarding when Naomi Campbell and Boy George are not there serving their time.
Campbell pleaded guilty in January for hitting her assistant Ana Scolavino in the back of the head with her phone last March. As part of her guilty plea, Campbell was ordered to pay Scolavino’s medical expenses of $363, do five days of community service and attend a two-day anger-management program. She’s scheduled for anger management sessions on Saturday and Sunday at a Department of Probation-approved facility in Brooklyn.
Despite this latest set back, Campbell’s appeal does not appear to have waned as demonstrated by the rousing reception she received as she entered the runway during last Thursday’s show in San Francisco.
