Nick Gordon, the former boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, has been arrested on domestic violence charges following an altercation involving his current girlfriend, police said.
The 28-year-old, who was found legally responsible for Brown’s 2015 death, was taken into custody Saturday on charges of battery and false imprisonment, police in Sanford, Florida, announced.
His girlfriend reportedly told police that Gordon beat her and refused to allow her to leave their shared home after a late-night argument, TMZ reported, citing local authorities.
Responding officers located Gordon at a clubhouse near his home where he was taken into custody, the police department said in a release.
It’s just the latest legal trouble to hit Gordon, who last year was ordered to pay $36 million to the Brown family estate following a wrongful death lawsuit.
That order followed Gordon being found legally responsible for Brown’s death, though he was never criminally charged.
Brown, who was the 22-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, died after being found unconscious in a bathtub at a home shared with Gordon.
Her family has said her death followed an altercation with Gordon, who is accused of placing her in the tub and injecting her with a “toxic cocktail” of drugs.
In a disturbing twist, Brown’s mother was similarly found unconscious in a bathtub before her death five years ago.
Gordon is being held on $15,500 bond, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
