Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model May Andersen was arrested after allegedly becoming unruly and striking a flight attendant on a plane from Amsterdam to Miami, police said.

Andersen, 23, from Denmark continued being loud and violent after officers met Martinair Flight 643 on the ground Thursday, Miami-Dade Airport Police said.

She was examined for alcohol and substance abuse at Jackson Memorial Hospital and later transported to the Miami-Dade County Jail.

She has a hold for immigration, which means no bail has been set. She cannot be released until immigration lifts it, said Janelle Hall, a corrections spokeswoman.

The alleged behavior is not typical for Andersen, said executives at Elite Models, the agency representing her.

“Our experience with her has been wonderful,” Elite director Cathy Gould said, adding said she has never received a complaint about the model from any clients.

Andersen was set to attend a bond hearing Saturday.

It was not immediately known whether she had an attorney.
