Tziporah Malkah has shared pictures of her bruised arms, which she claims are the result of ill-treatment from the South Australian police.

The 44-year-old, who was known as Kate Fischer and engaged to billionaire James Packer in the ‘90s, Instagrammed a pic of apparent bruises with the caption ‘bruises courtesy sa cops.’

The model was arrested in her Port Elliot home after a domestic violence dispute with her former partner Guy Vasey.

Tziporah claims after her arrest, she was dragged along the station floor, made to lie in her own urine, left without a blanket and was refused medication.

“About 48 hours ago I bit my partner Guy Vasey. 24 hours later, as I was quietly on screen in my room, he called the police and had them come over, arrest me for assault, handcuff me and throw me into the paddy wagon,” she posted.

“I was finally taken to the ... cop shop where amongst other things I was dragged along the floor, pushed and shoved and made to lie in my own urine in a cold room with no blanket. They would not allow me to take my medication or see a Dr.”

The South Australian police confirmed to Be that a 44-year-old woman from Port Elliot was arrested and charged with aggravated assault following a domestic incident at a Port Elliot home on the 26th of January.

She was also issued with a Police Interim Intervention Order and was bailed to appear in Victor Harbor Magistrates Court on 5 February.

South Australia Police say they are not aware of any official complaint having been made and that all complaints are assessed by the Internal Investigation Section to determine the most appropriate action.

The Daily Mail reports Tziporah is planning to leave South Australia and move to Sydney.

“Ill most likely relocate to Sydney. Edgecliff, Double Bay hopefully,” she said.

Tziporah hooked up with Guy, a friend from her teen years, after her stint on ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ last year.

She told New Idea they were “like a pair of lovers in a Latino soap opera' and 'we fight hard, we love hard!”
