The Daily Mail reports: The father of Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer two days after his daughter gave birth.

Rafael ‘Rafi’ Refaeli was allegedly involved in a physical and verbal confrontation with officers when they arrived at his house in the Sharon region of Israel on Saturday to deal with a noise complaint.

A female officer arrived and attempted to gain access to the property, where a party was taking place and loud music was being played, but was physically stopped from doing so by Mr Refaeli, it was reported.

Back-up was called and Mr Refaeli and a friend became verbally and physically aggressive with the officers, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Both Mr Refaeli and his friend were arrested and questioned, before being released on Sunday.
