According to an NBC New York report, Campbell, 39, became enraged with her chaffeur and -- from the back seat -- slapped and punched him as he drove. And, yes, Campbell allegedly struck her driver with her cell phone, he told authorities.

Remember these celebrity outbursts?

The driver eventually stopped the car on the Upper East Side to call 911; that's when Campbell jumped out of the car and ran. Cops are presently "looking to speak to her," the report says.

Early Tuesday evening, a rep for Campbell told

"There shouldn't be a rush to judgment. Naomi will co-operate voluntarily, and there is more to the story than meets the eye."

Nevertheless, the fashionista has developed something of a rap sheet for her outbursts. In 2008 she pled guilty to attacking two police officera at London's Heathrow Airport; a year earlier, she was sentenced to community service for throwing a phone at a maid; in 2005, an assistant accused her of slapping her and beating her with a Blackberry. In 2000, she pled guilty to a 1998 case involving an old assistant -- who claimed Campbell assaulted her with a telephone and threatened to throw her out of a moving car.
