TMZ, People, and the New York Daily News are all reporting that Nick Gordon, the humanoid cockroach who was found legally responsible for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, was arrested for domestic battery and kidnapping/false imprisonment of an adult on Sunday afternoon in Sanford, Florida.
According to a police report filed by his girlfriend Laura Leil, Nick allegedly lost it at his house on Friday night after they got back from a sports bar. Nick accused Laura of trying to hook up with one of his friends. Laura denied his accusation, but admitted to Nick that she thought their relationship was “toxic.” That’s when it got violent. After arguing for several hours, Nick allegedly gave Laura the option to leave and when she accepted it, he began “punching and hitting her” in the face and back of the head with closed fists. Laura said she tried to contact her sister for help via a laptop, but he grabbed it and kept it from her.
Laura was able to get out of there after she was able wake up Nick’s mother Michelle Gordon, who lives with him. Michelle drove Laura home, where her sister stepped in and drove her to the hospital. Laura filed the charges on Saturday.
TMZ says that Nick denied hitting Laura to the police. His side of the story is that she hit him, and that he wants to press charges against her. The Seminole County Sheriff’s office confirmed to People that Nick’s bond was set at $15,500 ($500 for the battery charge, $15,000 for the false imprisonment charge).
Sources close to Nick tell TMZ they’re not confident he’ll make bail. Nick still owes $36 million to Bobbi Kristina’s estate. If karma is real, then Nick won’t come close to making bail and he’ll be stuck in jail for the next seven weeks. Hopefully with a really big Whitney fan.
