The New York City driver who accused supermodel Naomi Campbell of assaulting him from the back seat of a luxury SUV says he “got angry and overreacted” and regrets involving the police.
Driver Miodrag Mejdina said through his lawyer Thursday that the incident was “blown out of proportion” and he wants to apologize to Campbell “for causing that to happen.”
He says he will not press charges.
Mejdina had told police that Campbell hit him from behind Tuesday and his head struck the steering wheel of the black Cadillac Escalade.
Campbell has faced a series of lawsuits and criminal cases accusing her of attacking household employees and two police officers at London’s Heathrow Airport.
Her spokesman did not return a call seeking comment.
