'America's Next Top Model' Audition Turns Ugly
New York - Three people were arrested and six injured Saturday, after a stampede broke out at auditions for cycle 13 of America's Next Top Model.
Thousands were gathered outside Park Central Hotel, some all night long, for a chance to try out for former supermodel Tyra Banks' hit reality show.
The show's creator Tyra Banks and co-executive producer Tom Mok issued a joint statement late Sunday, saying: "We are concerned by the events that occurred Saturday afternoon in the vicinity of the New York City casting call for the next cycle of 'America's Next Top Model.' At this time, we still don't know all the details of what happened or what triggered the incident. We appreciate the efforts of the NYPD and will assist them in any way possible in this matter."
Mayor Bloomberg urged future event organizers to advise the NYPD of their plans before things get out of control.
