Claws were allegedly unleashed during a recent cat fight between former America's Next Top Model ninth-season finalist Bianca Golden and Hairspray actress Nikki Blonsky.

Both were arrested and charged with assault with actual bodily harm -- which carries a maximum two-year sentence -- following a Wednesday altercation at the Providenciales International Airport in the Turks and Caicos Islands, People reported Friday.

The fight reportedly started when Golden, her brother George and their mom Elaine Clinton-Golden were waiting for a flight to New York in the departure lounge and removed Blonsky's luggage from a few chairs so they could sit, according to the Turks and Caicos Weekly News, Us Weekly reported Friday.

"Things got out of hand in an argument over seats in the departure lounge, and several people were involved in an altercation," a Providenciales Police Department source told People. "There were some injuries involved."

Clinton-Golden was alleged to have been "repeatedly kicked and punched all over her body" and was subsequently airlifted for treatment in Miami.

"I am in pain all the way down my arms and legs," Clinton-Golden told the Turks and Caicos Weekly News on Thursday from her hospital bed, Us reported. "I can hardly talk or walk and my head is hurting all over."

In addition to being charged with assault with actual bodily harm, Blonsky was also charged with common assault, which carries a 90-day maximum sentence.

Blonsky was spotted in a neck brace when she went to court on Friday morning, Us reported. She is due back in Magistrate court on December 1.

Blonsky's father Carl was charged with grievous bodily harm, according to People, which means the alleged victim was injured so severely they needed immediate medical care. The charge carries a five-year maximum sentence, and Carl will remain in jail for nine days until a hearing is set on his bail, police told People.

Both Nikki and Bianca were released on bail.

Bianca was the tenth girl eliminated from Top Model's ninth season last fall.  While competing, she also developed quite a reputation for frequently butting heads with the other girls.
