London, May 20 (IANS) Model Jessica White is willing to face trial over an assault charge stemming from a taxi dispute last year.

White was detained by New York City police in October last year after she allegedly struck Vanessa Kian in the face and pulled her hair during an altercation over a taxi, reports

The 26-year-old appeared in court in March this year, and was offered the chance to avoid prison by pleading guilty and signing up for two days of community service, anger management classes, and paying 298 pounds in compensation, but she declined the offer.

White showed up at a Manhattan courthouse May 17 and turned down the deal for the second time, adamant that a trial would clear her of any wrongdoing.

A court date has been set for June 15.
