Tara Palmer-Tomkinson 'arrested by armed police at Heathrow after throwing tantrum because she was refused access to first-class lounge' Tara Palmer-Tomkinson was arrested by eight armed police following a temper tantrum because she was refused access to the first-class lounge at Heathrow airport. The socialite, 42, swore at officers and tore out her hair extensions in fury before she was handcuffed by police and led away, it was reported last night. Miss Palmer-Tomkinson, who has a history of drink and drug problems, had been due to fly out to the exclusive ski resort of Klosters in Switzerland to celebrate her birthday before the incident on Saturday afternoon. She is thought to have been cautioned and released without charge. One witness told The Sun: ‘She had completely lost all control and she was screaming at officers. They had no choice but to arrest for her own and everyone else’s safety.’ The dramatic arrest was captured on video with onlookers describing her as ‘ballistic’. In the footage, Miss Palmer-Tomkinson – the goddaughter of Prince Charles – can be seen arguing with a male and female police officer. She then becomes so frustrated that she rips out a chunk of her own hair extensions and flings them at the officers’ feet amid a storm of four-letter abuse. As a third officer moves in, Miss Palmer-Tomkinson – who turns 43 tomorrow – tries to flee, screams ‘f*** off’ and hurls her coat on the floor as they stop her. Five more officers then arrive and, sobbing and screaming, the former model is restrained and handcuffed. In her rage, she also allegedly ripped a security badge from a BA manager. It is believed the incident was sparked when Miss Palmer-Tomkinson, who had a business class ticket, was prevented from entering British Airways’ first-class lounge. The Sun reported that police were called when she attempted to go back through security the wrong way.Another onlooker added: ‘She went ballistic, she screamed “I can’t f****** believe you are treating me like this”.’ Last night, Miss Palmer-Tomkinson claimed that she had not been drinking at the time and that a panic attack had triggered her behaviour. She said: ‘I was not drunk, there was no disorderly; I was cautioned and I saw a doctor, they were nice to me.’ She flew out to Switzerland last night. Earlier this year, Miss Palmer-Tomkinson gave an interview in which she claimed to be a recluse. She said that nowadays she hardly ever leaves her home because of anxiety and that the problem has become so severe that she has only gone outside three times this year.In an interview with talk show host Jeremy Kyle, she said she checked herself back to rehab two years ago after a nervous breakdown triggered by paranoia and anxiety. She also claimed that the experience has left her terrified to touch drugs again, and that she has seen a therapist every week for the last nine years. Her battle with drugs has been well-documented. In 1999, Miss Palmer-Tomkinson spent time in a rehabilitation centre, the Meadows, in Arizona, after she made a disorientated appearance on the Frank Skinner show. She was forced her to undergo reconstructive surgery on her nose after it collapsed in 2006 – damage which needed a further procedure in 2011. The former party girl, who admits she once had a £400-a-day cocaine habit, has also become infamous for her string of failed relationships. After being linked to the likes of Robbie Williams and James Blunt, she now claims not to want a boyfriend – because she can’t stand the way men eat.
