Actress Nikki Blonsky and her father were arrested Wednesday after getting into a violent brawl with America’s Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden and the model’s family at Providenciales International Airport on the Caribbean island of Turks and Caicos.
The fight broke out after Bianca’s mother tried to take one of the Blonsky family’s seats at the airport; the Blonskys allegedly refused to move their luggage.
Nikki and Bianca were both charged with assault and released on $6,000 bail, Us Weekly reports.

Nikki is now wearing a neck brace, while the older Ms. Golden was injured so severely she had to medivacced to nearby Miami for treatment.
Nikki Blonsky has been released from custody but must appear in court to face assault charges later this month. Mr. Blonsky is still in jail.
