"We're looking to talk to her. We anticipate that will happen," Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne told the NY Daily News. "He said Ms. Campbell had struck him in the back of the head or neck while he was driving, causing him to hit his head on the steering wheel."

The driver, 27-year-old Miodrag Mejdina of Queens, sought emergency medical service at the 17th Precinct station house, as he suffered bruising and a swollen eye after Campbell's attack. He did not press charges Tuesday, according to police, who issued a harassment report in connection with the incident.

Campbell was last seen exiting the black Cadillac Escalade the incident allegedly took place in, and darting through mid-town Manhattan clad in a black designer coat, police said.

The catwalk icon has a long history of raising her hands to others, particularly employees, as she pleaded guilty in 2000 to an assault charge for beating her assistant around the head with her phone. She was sentenced to a week of community service in 2007, after pleading guilty to misdemeanor assault for throwing a cell phone at her maid (who couldn’t find Campbell’s jeans).

She received another 200 hours of community service and a $4,500 fine in June 2008 following an incident at Heathrow Airport, where she cursed, kicked and spat at police over a missing piece of luggage. Her sentence: sweeping floors and scrubbing toilets in a Manhattan garbage-truck garage.
