Top Model 9’s Bianca Golden arrested after fight with Hairspray’s Nikki Blonsky

America’s Next Top Model 9 contestant Bianca Golden was arrested and released on bond along with Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky in the Turks and Caicos Islands after a fight that started over an airport seat.

The two women “were both charged with assault and were both released on $6,000 bail. Nikki is due back in an island court on December 1, while Bianca is due back on September 17,” according to Entertainment Tonight.

They “were aboard a flight in the Caribbean nation when they started fighting over an occupied seat. Blonsky’s father was also charged in the fight and will remain in jail until Aug. 8,” the AP reports.

Blonsky’s dad, Carl, was charged with “inflicting grievous bodily harm,” E! News reports, and Bianca’s “mother, Elaine, was hurt so badly she had to be airlifted to a hospital in Aventura, Fla., according to [police department spokesperson] Chase.”
