Police in Pursuit of Naomi Campbell After She Assaulted Driver, Fled from Scene

>> New York City police are on the hunt for Naomi Campbell after she assaulted her limo driver in Midtown this afternoon.  They are considering whether to charge the model; her 27-year-old driver says she become angry with him while he was driving her around Manhattan, and she started to slap and punch him from the back seat of his Cadillac Escalade.

When the driver stopped the car at E. 58th Street and Second Avenue just after 3 pm and called 911, Campbell reportedly jumped out of the car and ran away; she was last seen exiting the scene.  Police are canvassing the area and messages left with Campbell spokesman Jeff Raymond were not returned.

UPDATE: The driver, Miodrag Mejdina, has declined to press charges, though suffered bruising and swelling under an eye — he said that Campbell struck on the back of the head while he was driving, causing him to hit his head on the steering wheel. Mejdina had been hired to chaffeur Campbell's boyfriend, the still married Vladislav Doronin, a year ago, and Campbell had tried to call both men, but neither picked up their phone.  She was mulling over the accident again yesterday, according to the driver, and accused Medjina for covering for Doronin before slapping him. Campbell's spokesman noted of the incident: “There shouldn’t be a rush to judgment. There is more to the story than meets the eye.” [NYDN, NY Times]
