Police in Sanford say they arrested the ex-boyfriend of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown on Saturday on a domestic violence charge.
Law enforcement revealed that the girlfriend filed a report at the police station, claiming she'd been battered and not allowed to leave their residence. We're told officers went to the residence and found Nick at the pool area.
Sometime after sunrise, Leal broke free from Gordon and ran into his sleeping mother's bedroom, the report says.
Bobbi Kristina's mom (and singer Bobby Brown's former wife) Houston died at age 48 in the Beverly Hilton hotel bathtub in February 2012 of accidental drowning -with heart disease and cocaine use as contributing factors.
But Gordon did not face any criminal charges. Gordon was her longtime partner. The lawsuit had alleged Brown "died due to a violent altercation" with Gordon, "after which he placed her in a bathtub, unconscious, after he injected her with a toxic mixture".
Gordon was never found to be criminally responsible for her death. Her mourning daughter would suffer a bizarrely similar fate almost three years later. The 26-year-old is now being held at no bail. Cops were called at the time but Gordon fled before they arrived.
