When it comes to striking employees, the third time proved to be unlucky for supermodel Naomi Campbell, who was arrested and charged recently for attacking her housekeeper.

According to the police, the 35 year old model was arrested and booked on charges of second-degree assault.

As for the unidentified 41-year housekeeper who was treated at Lenox Hill Hospital for lacerations to the head, Campbell’s publicist said that they were going to prove in court that the charges were a case of retaliation on behalf of the employee who had been fired by Campbell earlier in the day.

“We believe this is a case of retaliation, because Naomi had fired her housekeeper earlier this morning. We are confident the courts will see it the same way,” E!Online quoted Campbell’s rep as saying.
