Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky may be changing her tunes to those of West Side Story. The actress and her father were arrested on charges of assault after a rumble with the family of America's Next Top Model alum Bianca Golden at the Providenciales International Airport in Turks and Caicos. "They were involved in an altercation at the airport in the departure lounge," Sgt. Chase of the Turks and Caicos Islands Police Department told E!. The scuffle reportedly erupted over a disagreement about saved seats in the waiting area. Nikki was charged with assault, actual bodily harm and common assault while her father, Carl, faces a count of inflicting grievous bodily harm. Nikki was released on $6,000 bail, but her dad remains behind bars until August 8. Bianca Golden was also charged with counts of assault, while her mother Elaine sustained injuries that warranted an airlift to Florida for further care.
