Jessica White, who has appeared in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition, was arrested early Saturday morning outside Avenue Lounge in New York, a NYPD officer confirms to PEOPLE.

She was charged with misdemeanor assault and later released. Page Six writes:

According to witnesses, White walked to 10th Avenue at about 4:50 a.m. to hail a taxi after leaving a Chelsea club. But while standing on the corner of West 17th Street, she got into a dispute with “a 28-year-old woman.”

The court complaint says 26-year-old White “pulled the victim’s hair and struck [the victim] numerous times in the face with her hand, causing abrasions, swelling and substantial pain.”

Jessica has modeled for Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue and is the on-again, off-again girlfriend of actor Sean Penn.
