Nick Gordon was arrested in Seminole County, Florida on a charge of domestic violence on Saturday. His girlfriend, Laura Leal claimed that Gordon struck her in the face while she was driving.
According to the police report, Laura Leal had a visible injury on her face, including a swollen bottom lip with dried blood. She told the police officers that she picked up Gordon from a bar in Sanford to give him a ride home. While she was driving, the couple started arguing. Gordon pulled her hair and hit her in the right side of her cheek several times causing her difficulties to keep the steering wheel straight. The fight continued when the couple arrived home.
Leal refused to press any charges or sign documents against him. Gordon, in his turn, told the police that he did not hit her and that she threw a bottle at him and tore his shirt.
Gordon, 29, is well known for being late Bobbi Kristina Brown’s former boyfriend. This is not his first arrest, in fact, he was behind the bars in June 2017. Leal called the authorities and said that Gorden wouldn’t let her leave the residence. Gordon was charged with domestic violence and false imprisonment. However, his lawyer told the news that the charges were dropped and the couple continued to live together after Gordon moved out from his mother’s house. The case was closed after Gordon passed an anger management class.
Gordon was also accused in the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of late Whitney Houston. Bobbi died as a result of a violent altercation with Gordon who injected her with a toxic mixture and later placed unconscious Bobbi in a bathtub. Bobbi was then found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta residence. The ruling judge ordered Gordon to pay $36 million, but he denied all charges.
Gordon is waiting for his court appearance on April 6. He was posted a $500 bond.
