Naomi Campbell has been sentenced to mop the floors of New York's Sanitation Department. The supermodel, who received the punishment after being found guilty of throwing a phone at her maid, will complete five days of court-ordered community service at the Manhattan garage for trash-trucks. Naomi - who has been advised to wear an orange vest and workman's boots - is due to begin her sentence on March 19. During the court case, lawyers for the British model told the judge that she would not agree to "do a Boy George". The ex-Culture Club singer was ordered to sweep the streets of New York wearing a bright orange jacket, after being found guilty of lying to police about a burglary.
Naomi will be allowed to stay inside the garage out of the public view. Naomi, 36, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour assault in January, after being arrested for hurling her crystal-encrusted phone at Ana Scolavino last March. The incident left Ana needing four stitches to the head. Naomi was fined £180, ordered to do five days' community service and instructed to complete a two-day anger management programme. This is the star's first criminal conviction.
