Update (10:58 PM): Law enforcement officials are saying that Campbell will likely not face criminal charges for this latest incident, because the victim – for some reason – has decided not to pursue the matter.

What are your thoughts about this new twist?

*****************************************************************

The police are in pursuit of Naomi Campbell after she slugged her driver in New York earlier this afternoon.

Campbell, according to the NYPD, allegedly assaulted the driver of her Cadillac Escalade on East 58th street and Second Avenue at approximately 3 p.m. today. 

Gossip Cop is told the supermodel struck the driver from the back seat, causing him to hit his head against the steering wheel.

The driver has “bumps and bruises” under his right eye, says a police source.

After the police were called for help, Campbell fled the scene, and the cops are currently still looking for her.

“There shouldn’t be a rush to judgment,” a rep for Campbell tells Gossip Cop. “Naomi will co-operate voluntarily, and there is more to the story than meets the eye.”

Campbell has had several scrapes with the law over the years.

Among Campbell’s “greatest hits”?

In 2000, the model pleaded guilty to assault in Canada after whacking her assistant over the head with a telephone.

In 2007, the model was sentenced to five days of community service, and had to attend anger management classes, after pleading guilty to assaulting her housekeeper with a cell phone.

And in 2008, Campbell was sentenced to 200 hours of community service after pleading guilty to assaulting two British police officers.

Gossip Cop will update as more details emerge about this latest incident…
