Kate Moss took refuge in a Paris police station this week to escape a fleet of paparazzi chasing her car, police said Friday.

About a dozen photographers on scooters and in cars followed the supermodel's car as she left the Ritz Hotel late Thursday, police said. A friend, Jean-Yves le Fur, was driving.

Moss and le Fur stayed in the police station in western Paris about five minutes, then police blocked off the photographers so they could leave safely. No complaint was filed.

Moss, 31, lost contracts with H&M, Burberry and Chanel after Britain's Daily Mirror tabloid in September published pictures of her allegedly using cocaine in a London music studio where her then-boyfriend, Pete Doherty, was recording with his group, Babyshambles.
