Bobbi Kristina Brown’s ex ar­rested for do­mes­tic vi­o­lence

DNA (Delhi) - - Holly -

Nick Gor­don has been ar­rested on a charge of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. The 27-year-old — who is best known for dat­ing the late Bobbi Kristina Brown be­fore her death in July 2015 — was ar­rested on Satur­day in Semi­nole, Florida, af­ter his girl­friend, Laura Leal, called po­lice al­leg­ing that he struck her in the face while she was driv­ing. Ac­cord­ing to En­ter­tain­ment Tonight, the ar­rest­ing of­fi­cer stated Leal had a vis­i­bly swollen lip with dried blood. Leal claims she picked up Gor­don from a bar and he at­tacked her while she was driv­ing, but Gor­don told po­lice they had both been drink­ing al­co­hol at his home and she at­tacked him, rip­ping his shirt and throw­ing a bot­tle at him. Leal re­fused to press charges against Gor­don, whom she said she has been dat­ing for the past six months. Gor­don was ar­rested for Bat­tery Do­mes­tic Vi­o­lence, and posted a $500 bond. He is due to ap­pear in court on April 6. Last June, he was ar­rested for do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and kid­nap­ping his girl­friend at the time, but the charges were even­tu­ally dropped. Bobby Brown, fa­ther of Bobbi Kristina, re­leased a state­ment via his le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tive, of­fer­ing his sup­port to Leal. The state­ment said, “We have been in­formed that Nick Gor­don was ar­rested for do­mes­tic vi­o­lence of Laura Leal in Florida. We would like to speak with Ms Leal and of­fer her ser­vices through the Bobbi Kristina Brown Seren­ity House, a not for profit or­gan­i­sa­tion de­signed to as­sist women who have been vic­tims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. On March, 4 2018, the Bobbi Kristina Brown Seren­ity House held our first event to strike back at do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. I per­son­ally would like to ex­tend my hand to Ms Leal and of­fer her ser­vices through our or­gan­i­sa­tion.”
