'Runway' Star

Jailed for

Cat-astrophic Assault

3/18/2009 3:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0318_kenley_collins_ex_getty-1One of the most memorable -- and hated -- finalists from "Project Runway" is behind bars right now for allegedly fashioning a weapon out of a living, breathing, meowing cat ... and firing it at her ex-fiance! 

Kenley Collins -- the trash-talking, third place loser from P.R. Season 5 -- was arrested in a Brooklyn home early yesterday morning, after the D.A. claims she attacked her sleeping ex-fiance with anything she could get her hands on -- including a cat, a laptop, several apples and finally ... water. It's like a design challenge turned violent!

It's unclear what started the fight, but according to legal papers Kenley told her ex, "You're lucky ... it could've been a lot worse."

Kenley was arrested and charged with six crimes -- including 2nd degree assault, 3rd degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon in the 4th degree.

No word on when Kenley is set to be released from jail.

Why didn't she get felony domestic assault charges? M.Vick is in prison for hurting animals, and Chris Brown is getting raped by the media for beating a bitches ass and "threatening" her. I guess if you are white female you only get 2nd and 3rd degree assault charges.... justice huh!

I hate that cow. And #21, you're an idiot. Crawl back under your rock now. Vick is in prison for breaking federal law (duh, dumba$$, dog fighting is illegal in this country) and Brown, well, his bitch ass is gonna get a beat down soon. BTW, moron, those charges ARE felony charges.

This woman is evil. Positively vicious. Hope her "career" - such as it is - is over now. And why wasn't she charged with animal cruelty?? Throw the freakin' book at the nutcase.

Thank you! I was thinking the same thing! No animal should be used as weapon. Someone should take that cat away from before she really does some harm!

The only reason that she even made it into the final was because it made good television.
I personally couldnt stand her. She was so one note, it wasnt even funny.
What was funny was her 'hip hop' outfit.
High waisted pants on a hip hop inspired piece?
uhhhh yeah.....

So, all you perfect people never had a fight with your boyfriend or girlfriend or spouse? What's your secret? I don't agree with relationship violence, not even a little bit. But, I also don't agree with a group of people who don't actually have the real facts but gang up together to be nasty. IMO you are just as bad to be gossiping and writing mean comments about someone you don't even know. Here's hoping I never know any of you.
