Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky and her father were arrested on assault charges Friday following a brawl involving the family of America's Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden in a Caribbean airport, police tell PEOPLE.
The 19-year-old actress was released on bail, while her father, Carl Blonsky, remained in jail. Golden was also arrested and released on bail. Golden's mother Elaine was reportedly hospitalized with serious injuries.
Sgt. Calvin Chase from the Providenciales Police Department in the Turks and Caicos Islands said the fight erupted in the departure lounge of the Providenciales International Airport after everyone had gone through security.
"Things got out of hand in an argument over seats in the departure lounge, and several people were involved in an altercation," Chase tells PEOPLE. "There were some injuries involved."
Nikki Blonsky was charged with assault with actual bodily harm, which carries a maximum sentence of two years, and common assault, also known as threat of assault, with a 90-day maximum term.

Is that the girl that was on Dancing with the Stars?
WTH? Fighting over seats. Are they immature or just crazy?

Okay, I googled it. No, she isn't the same one that was on dancing with the stars. The "lady" that was arrested was in Hairspray the movie and the lady that was on Dancing with the Stars was in the Broadway play.
I thought it seemed really out of character for the lady on DWTS. She was so bubbly and was getting ready to have her first child through surrogacy. Of course like you said what you see is not always what you get when it comes to celebrities (or anyone else for that matter).

I wonder if her new found "celebrity" went to her head and she thought she and her father were "entitled" to certain seats.
Who knows. Maybe it was the other two that were causing all the trouble. But why physically fight over a seat?

I know nothing about Nicki but anyone who watched Bianca's season of America's Next Top Model knows that girl is a major witch who starts fights with everyone.

Everyone is assuming this was Nikki's fault and she was the one who started the cat fight. I am betting it was the troll Bianca who started the drama and probably threw the first punch.
She should be sitting in jail too.
