The former model-turned-bounty hunter who inspired Keira Knightley's latest movie Domino was sent to prison yesterday (18MAY05) after a massive drugs raid.

DOMINO HARVEY, 35, was found to be in possession of a stash of amphetamines worth more than $1.9 million (GBP1 million) during an alleged FBI bust.

British born Harvey, whose gritty life story has been charted in the upcoming Tony Scott thriller, is being charged with conspiracy to distribute drugs, possession, trafficking and racketeering, and may be sent to Mississippi for trial.

The US attorney's office in LA confirms: "Domino Harvey has been criminally charged."

The ex-fashionista has not yet entered a plea.

Knightley, who plays Harvey in the movie, met her in order to research her role, and enthused, "She's amazing. Just incredible."
